So let us remember that it was the Guardian that knowingly, deliberately and illegally forged a cabinet minister's signature to get an exclusive story.
It was the Guardian that cynically abandoned one of journalism's most fundamental and sacred covenants by revealing the identity of a confidential informant.
As a result of that betrayal, a Foreign Office civil servant - a 23-year-old woman - was sent to prison.
So, if the Guardian has any fresh evidence to support their claims against us, we invite them to pass it on to the police without delay.
Yesterday, in their editorial column, they proclaimed: "Decent journalism has never been more necessary . . . "
We couldn't agree more. It's time they practised what they preach.
You know things are bad when the News of the Screws feels it has the moral high ground.
