Insofar as it is legally permissible, I would like to write about a piece of evidence in the trial that everybody is talking about – the trial of Rebekah Brooks and others, including her former lover, the former spin doctor to British Prime Minister David Cameron.

The piece of evidence concerned is a love letter that Mrs Brooks wrote to the former spin doctor and also former editor, Andy Coulson.

The trial itself relates to the workings of the media in the UK: it is not that, but rather the nature of a woman's broken heart that I would like to consider – not just any woman, but a woman like Rebekah Brooks.
