Six Years Later

It is now common parlance that Rupert Murdoch is still determining government policy and seeking commercial advantage in exchange for political endorsements; shady deals that decide who sits on the green front benches in parliament.

 

Wait, .... the deals are not so shady.... In fact he has boasted about the influence he has on the front page of The Sun.

Dennis Skinner MP, asked the concise question today in parliament, and that provoked the equivocal answer from Prime Minister, David Cameron, suggesting if not confirming that he had private conversations with Rupert Murdoch about the proposed take-over of BSkyB.

 

He did so after Cameron twice dodged the same question put to him by other MPs.

A succession of Tory back bench contributions defended Cameron by insisting that they had only done what Labour had done before them. This Tory chorus was infantile point scoring and more like an admission of guilt than a denial of wrong doing.

 

Nick Clegg looked uncomfortable and so he should, because he had squandered the high ground he had inherited.

On the TV news tonight, commentators noted that Cameron had apologised. I watched the whole debate and failed to recognise the apology, as an apology, and only heard the rhetorical claptrap.  


In fact I even missed the Derek Skinner intervention that nailed the Cameron lie. Nevertheless the news media has provided me with constant replays.


Hail Dennis Skinner who has no equal when it comes to pointing an angry finger at the over high and the overly mighty.
