Man Tragically Born Without Spine

Film, Media

That’ll be the ‘Culture Secretary’ Jeremy Hunt, then. Boyish smile, and the cold dead eyes of a serial killer. He’s just paved the way for a Fox News-style Conservative monopoly by approving News Corporation’s plan to spin off Sky News, clearing the way for its proposed £8bn purchase of the 61% of BSkyB it does not already own.

The quote which will ideally come back to haunt him for the rest of his sorry life is: “Nothing is more precious to me than the free and independent press for which this country is famous the world over.’

Not any more, mate. Only an idiot would now believe in anything other than the Orwellian philosophy of corporate snouts burying themselves in the trough while mouthing platitudes to the opposite effect.

If the next generation after Murdoch proves even more rapacious, Mr Hunt will do well to remember where they found their role models.

    I am in total agreement with you. Hunt just read £8bn and caved in. I wonder who he will get a job with when he leaves polotics.

    Has your blog ever been used to organise a contract killing, I wonder?
    This odious arse and his two-headed chimera boss/bosses in Downing (rhymes with clowning) Street have signed away an awful lot with this.
    The drearily acquisitive ‘Man with full-face jowls’ is quietly but firmly bending free speech over something of convenient height (must be careful of your back at his age) and preparing a violent shafting in years to come. . . Dearie me.
    I don’t think the ‘Condamneds’ have the first understanding of what constitutes the genuine cultural individualism of the country they govern (sorry, this is the government that would rather not govern, isn’t it?)
    Sam Cam can glean a little cred sitting in the front row of the latest catwalk bulemiathon, but her husband’s crew meanwhile gut the nation’s arts schools/universities of any significant government funding from 2012.
    Alarming, as the creative industries are a massive money-spinner for the nation and these same universities train worrls-leaders in a variety of disciplines.

    May they choke on their Eton mess.

    Little bit of politics, there.

    That should of course have read ‘world-leaders’
    and
    ‘choke on their Eton mess slowly enough that someone can film it on their phone and put it up on Youtube so I can laugh and laugh and laugh at it.’

    Perhaps I won’t have another glass. . .

    Johnny Rotten had similar eyes…

    …and now he’s flogging off butter. I’m sure there’s a moral in there somewhere.
