UK’s Cameron says needs to clean up media


British Prime Minister David Cameron, asked about a phone hacking scandal during a visit to Africa, said on Tuesday that wrongdoing in the media needed to be tackled and allegations of police corruption investigated. However, he defended his two-day trip to Africa, saying that he was focusing on priorities like boosting business and fighting crime. “I just would want to give this reassurance to people that back at home…this does consist of big problems, but we are a big country and we’re going to sort them out,” he told reporters during a news conference with Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan. “At the same time we’re not going to take our eye off the ball on getting our economy to grow, getting jobs for our people, making sure we’ve got..immigration and welfare policies and doing all the things that frankly the British people are crying out for their government to get on with.”
