Dr Victoria Honeyman from POLIS provides expertise on the political impact of the News of the World phone hacking scandal.

Dr Honeyman, Lecturer in British Politics has provided comment to the Washington Post this week in relation to the recent  phone hacking scandal.

In the article, entitled UK Prime Minister David Cameron weakened by his ties to figures in phone hacking scandal, Victoria suggests that Cameron's hiring of former News of the World Communications Director and one-time editor Andy Coulson, amongst other relationships with significant figures in the scandal "doesn't show him in a positive light".
