    You can’t be saying it was known by ole Rupes & Jimmy no they wouldn’t do that.
    It really is a crock at the end of the day ain’t it folks.

    Covered with sideshows & charades and mock trials, when all they need to do is lock em away.

    When the British Establishment rises up, no-one is safe. Someone should have told Rupert they will only let you go so far and then……..

    Nemesis inexorably follows Hubris – Schadenfreude is a dish best savoured slowly.

    I thought I was up to speed about all this a while ago, until I watched the 4 Corners program on this. Wow! I was shocked by the number of people involved in all this, and the breadth of activities? It will be sweet if James and/or Rupert had to face charges! How sweet it is, would be my response!

    Perhaps, ‘what goes around comes around’ can happen?

    When The Australian and the Telegraph get up on their high horse, it’s almost too much for me! What a bunch of hypocrites, insisting that their ‘news’ is of the best journalistic standards and not a hate campaign for Labor/Julia Gillard! I almost bring up my lunch, or breakfast or ????

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – read Dial M For Murdoch, by Tom Watson and Martin Hickman. The width, depth and breadth of Murdoch’s crimes will blow you away.
