UK daily reveals new Cameron-Brooks texts

British Labour Party lawmaker Chris Bryant called Sunday for the country's media ethics inquiry to publish all the text messages it has between Prime Minister David Cameron and Rebekah Brooks, who now faces charges over the News of The World phone hacking scandal.

On Sunday, The Mail newspaper printed two new messages the pair had exchanged in 2009, prompting a call from the opposition for Judge Brian Leveson's ethics inquiry to disclose the texts.

In one new message disclosed, Cameron thanked Brooks for letting him borrow a horse in 2009. "The horse CB put me on. Fast, unpredictable and hard to control but fun."

Another message, from Brooks to Cameron after his speech to his party's 2009 convention, read: "Brilliant speech. I cried twice. Will love 'working together'." In the speech, Cameron had referred to the death of his 6-year-old son Ivan, who suffered from cerebral palsy and a severe epilepsy condition.

Bryant on Sunday urged Cameron to voluntarily release all messages he had traded with Brooks. "You can get over being embarrassed, what you can't get over is deliberately hiding things from the British public," the lawmaker told BBC television.
