False flag (aka Black Flag) operations are covert operations designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities.[citation needed] The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is flying the flag of a country other than one's own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations, and can be used in peace-time.

So she is just hacking government accounts to sell newspapers ???

Well , I guess she could be that naive/stupid

It really never occurred to her that FOREIGN POWERS might , just might , be interested in what Whitehall is doing. She better get real agreeable real quick. Did she really attempt to destroy 5 years of evidence?

The fact that her birthname is not in the public domain would indicate that something is to be found there, someone famous, infamous, MI6, or CIA perhaps, who slotted her in. How much help would an English speaking 20 year old be to a French language archectural magazine? Did she get secret service training there, while being enrolled at the Sorbonne? It was 1988, before the fall of the Soviet Empire.
On one site, it is said she waltzed into the Murdoch Empire like a genie from a lamp.
According to the Observer, opposition leader Ed Milliband was threatened with repercussions if he continued to demand her resignation?! I hope he takes them to court.

Murdoch visited the then British PM Tony Blair three times in the days before the Brits joined in Iraq. Murdoch is not just a businessman, he is an influence peddler and since he has done that for decades, she is probably related to one of Murdoch's lackeys in one of the secret services.
