In another flurry of tweets today, Michael continued to talk about the phone-hacking scandal, insisting that it is "so important to the future of Britain." This time around, the singer focused his vitriol on Jonathan Rees, a private investigator that he says is a key figure in the News of the World's illegal activities. The singer urged his fans to read up on the Guardian's reporting on Rees, declaring the rival paper to be "the true heroes in all of this."
While on the topic of his home being surveilled by the press, Michael shared an anecdote about a pair of photographers who camped outside his estate for years. "One night in particular, I strolled over the road to one of them and tapped on his window and said 'I hope you like my taste in men," he wrote.
