Cameron 'perfectly happy' over publishing of 'cozy' Rebekah Brooks texts
British Prime Minister David Cameron has indicated he is "perfectly happy" over the fact that the text messages and emails exchanged between him and former News International chief Rebekah Brooks were made public.
Copies of the correspondence between Cameron and Brooks were handed to the Leveson Inquiry by NI, but most of it has been kept secret after Lord Justice Leveson deemed it irrelevant to his inquiry into media standards.
According to the Telegraph, a spokesman for Cameron said it was "completely a matter for Lord Justice Leveson" what information was released to the public and that Downing Street had complied fully with his requests for information.
"Whether it comes out is not a matter for us, it is a matter for Leveson," the paper quoted the spokesman, as saying.
According to the paper, it is understood that Cameron would be "perfectly happy" for any text messages or emails which Lord Justice Leveson believes to be relevant to his inquiry to be published.
Two text messages leaked to a Sunday newspaper showed that Cameron messaged Brooks about a "fast, unpredictable ride" on her husband's horse, and that Brooks texted Cameron to say she "cried twice" during one of his speeches.
