A Footnote [Sep. 7th, 2010|11:11 am]
Tony Grist
In my earlier post about Andy Coulson I missed out something important. The News of the World- which he edited at the time of the  phone-tapping scandal- is owned by  The Emperor of the World  Rupert Murdoch. This goes a long way towards explaining (a) why Cameron hired him and (b) why the scandal was and is being handled with kid gloves.

Oh, don't cross out The Emperor of the World. If Rupert Murdoch isn't it, it's certainly what he aspires to be.

I wish our leaders would dare to call his bluff.

I think "The Emperor of the World" is quite fitting. *bleargh*

Murdoch is a blight on every society in which he operates.
