Rupert Murdoch tells Fox News he’s given up on buying BSkyB…

“We’ve moved on from our thinking in that. That was billions and billions of dollars and if Britain doesn’t want them, we’ll find a place to put them here.”

    Who needs dollars when you’ve swapped all the nation’s gold for worthless bits of paper euros ?

      The euro is a wonderful currency and Britain should join it as soon as possible, or even sooner.

      Vote Conservative, for a glorious and prosperous future in the EU and the euro!

      Chortle chortle.

    Get it right Rupert, it’s Britain’s establishment elite that doesn’t want it here. Be too much like another NOTW breaking stories about their indiscretions and unusual hobbies.

    He ‘fooled em’ once with his reverse take-over of the $1 billion dollar writ issued by Canal+ for ‘piracy’.

    The claims by News Corp and all of its lieutenants / executives about being at the forefront of ‘outing piracy’ on the net – have worn a bit thin.

    Me thinks thou protesteth too much – of thy innocence …

    He said he was truly humbled by the Milly Dowler ‘cover up’ … truly rumbled more like.

    Try again Rupert – your ramblings are becoming like those of King Lear in his demise.

    Predictably Murdoch is taking his money elsewhere. Tell that to the cnuts, Camaroon who set up the ludicrous enquiry and his lordship who is making a career (and buckets of dosh for the lads) out of it. Such predictable nonsense murdering finally, the print press.

      Wh2 – get real

      Murdoch is not taking ‘his money’ elsewhere … he is not going to be taking the British publics money elsewhere – e.g. into his off shore tax haven on the Cayman Islands.

      Honestly – don’t you realise that the British public have been Murdoch’s biggest cash cow for at least the past decade. He will fez up to any ruse that the public will fall for and maximise his take.

          There is no transparency from the BBC nor Murdoch – both operate in – the UK especially with a considerable ‘lack’ of “Corporate Governance” against it being told to the public day in day that we have “Corporate Governance” -we don’t, its an illusion and a ruse upon the public.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
