More housekeeping in Rupert Murdoch’s family company. Ahead of the great man’s arrival in Australia to sell the virtues of his biggest divorce, News Corp late last week announced it had tired of being a listed company on the London Stock Exchange, its first port of call when the Sun King outgrew Australia and fled to London (along with a host of fellow Australians) to make his fortune and achieve global fame.

News Corp’s leaving the London Stock Exchange leaves the US listing in New York and Australia as its “home exchanges”. But you have to ask, will Australia follow London when the great split happens?
