    Press release

    We have to change all our top managers and editors very reguarly in case plod catches up with them. You have also noticed that no members of the Murdoch family have any executive positions in News International, for good reason.

    End of press release

    To be honest I do not have a clue who John Withrow and James Harding are, but the one in the photo looks like an extra on the sweeney.

      a world of money no object,

      if money is no object then what is?
      the idea of import.ance has been imported?
      do less.
      be more alive.
      synchronise.

      11 million appreciations.
      sounds grand.

    It has been made clear to me…

    How does the Murdoch Mob do that?

    At the point of a FFF?

    Lawyer’s writ?

    Or simple threat?

    The message has clearly got thru’…

    … its notable how increasingly irrelevant any news related to the Times has become. No longer close to being a newspaper of record, the grim little tabloid is confused and directionless.

    The Guardian is crap.

    David Cameron Is A Cunt says:

    See, even Rupert knows that the public have had enough of this left wing shit masquerading as the mythical modern “centerist” way.

    Now if we can just get that basic realisation into the thick heads of Cameron, Osborne and co then maybe, just maybe, we can see both the Conservative party and the Country start to rebuild and recover.

    Why not rushbridger for the times

    It s in its. death throes so in his own inimitable fashion he can administer the coup de grace …. As he does so effectively little by little each and every day for the. grauniad.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

It’s money innit.
