It’s rather revealing to see the press united in condemnation of Vince Cable’s confession that he had gone to war with Rupert
Moloch Murdoch’s media empire over News International’s attempts to make Sky ( BskyB ) a wholly owned subsidiary.
Not so long ago the media were uniting against Murdoch family empire building plans.
Let’s not forget Murdoch already owns a sizeable chunk of UK print media and has a controlling interest in satellite broadcasting. It was only thanks to Vince Cable earlier this year that News International were blocked from gaining a controlling interest in ITV which under a Labour government led by Murdoch’s best buddy (until he ceased to be useful to The Dirty Digger) Tony Blair.
So the question is do we want to be governed by a coalition of elected MPs or by the most facistic and self interested of corporations headed by a leading member of The Bilderberg Group.
Before the terminally gullible among you reach for the hate keys to tell me there are no such things as conspiracies and the Bilderberg group are not shape shifting lizard men read this.
Elsewhere there are more reports obtained by under cover reporters secretly recording “off the record” conversations revealing that unlike the unthinking automatons who make up most of the Conservative and Labour parliamentary parties, the Lib Dems are actually having heated debates about what needs to be done.
The press are more agitated about the idea of independent minds in government than they are about the failure of public service providers to keep the country moving throughout the cold weather.Obviously the meeja lefties of Fleet Street and Broadcasting House still don’t understand what coalition government means.
Either that or they yearn for a return to the days of New Labour with it’s loonytoons economics and the authoritarianism of the politically correct thought police, the people who made gay rights issues more of a priority than sorting out unemployment, the NHS or the fubar schools system
So far the coalition have given us a mixed bag of results. We would have to grade them fair to middling with a lot of room for improvement. And the Europhilia and enthusiasm for greater integration being displayed is a big worry. But they have made a few steps in the right direction on rolling back the nanny state’s invasion of our wheelie bins, living rooms, kitchens and beds.
