Rupert Murdoch is dead


The media is truly eating itself. Expense cheating politicians (Gordon Brown, John Prescott et al) are rounding up on the media who stopped many of their gravy trains. The inept police who appear to have been corrupted by the cash in brown envelopes are spinning their way out of explaining why they never pursued the News of the World phone hacking claims further. Rupert Murdoch, an American citizen, who makes most of his money in the USA and Asia must be loving this side show.

In 2006 the Met Chief was caught illegally hacking into a phone conversation with the Attorney General.

Nothing was done about it.

In 2003 News International admitted to paying police and phone hacking.

Nothing was done about it.

In other real news:

So what has this to do with super injunctions?

Well paying for privacy is not the answer to the free for all press the UK now has. With corrupt politicians and the police there is a need for a proper Bill of Rights. David Cameron has been banging on about one for years. So where is it?

    That's what seems to happen when law makers and law enforcers become criminals.

    Is that the new definition of 'anarchy', I wonder?
