The Leveson Inquiry's lead lawyer, Robert Jay, cut straight to the chase as Brooks began her day-long testimony, pressing her for names of politicians who had expressed their sympathy when she was caught up in the hacking storm in July 2011. At first Brooks sought to evade the question, but eventually said:
