Honest, the dog ate my homework

If you believe this story, you'll believe anything:
Ms Hoppen's claims [of phone hacking by The News of the World] are strongly denied by Mr Evans and the NOTW, who say the journalist had no reason to telephone the designer and that the calls may have been the result of "pocket dialling" – meaning that her number could have been called accidentally while being carried in a bag or clothing. The newspaper has countered claims that Mr Evans – suspended since last April – entered a PIN code for Ms Hoppen's voicemail by saying it might have been the result of the "sticky keys" on his handset.
"Sticky keys" indeed ...
