Join Left Foot Forward as we look over the year that was, and count down our ten favourite videos of 2011…

Steve Coogan was one of the unlikely heroes of the phone hacking saga, fighting vigorously against the web of tabloid sleaze which is still being uncovered today.

For all of the focus on News International, the target of Coogan’s wrath was the Daily Mail, and of all of the great videos to come from the scandal, his short but sweet tirade against that paper on Newsnight wins for saying everything there is to say in just over a minute – with the added advantage of making Louise Mensch look a right, well, see for yourself:

    And yet the state does the same, without warrants.

    Does the state tell people when they have hacked their phones? Of course not.

    Do the people who worked for the state who illegally hacked phones get sacked? No.

    Do they pay compensation? No – after all they haven’t told people.

    One rule for the dictators, one for the plebs.

    Mind you, Labour tried to give councils wonks the right to intercept communications without a warrant.

    You’re just hypocrites
