Golly. I just can't get enough of the Rupert Murdoch/News International scandal. The old Con monkey is under attack everywhere.
He has finally lost his immunity, his dignity. Or what was left of it.
And now his preciousssss Rebekah...
David Cameron's Cons are getting hammered in the polls.
And some columnists in Britain are finally asking the question that can be avoided no longer. The one I've been dying to ask.
Why was the bully Murdoch allowed to get away with it for so long?
Whether in the schoolyard or the boardroom, bullies are powerful, invariably surrounded by a loyal clique, and ruthless in maintaining their dominance over others.
The collapse of the power of the greatest bully of our times, Rupert Murdoch, is thus profoundly refreshing and enabling.
Bullies are only vulnerable when they are openly and comprehensively defied. And in this, Westminster has singularly and overwhelmingly failed. Who can doubt that Murdoch could have been taken on and defeated many years ago, if we, together with the politicians and the police, had seen the scrawny nakedness behind the Emperor's New Clothes and called his bluff?
But of course our corporate media can't ask that question, because they have totally failed to call our own mad Emperor's bluff...
Which leads me to my last question. Can Rupert Murdoch
Perhaps it is too much to hope for that Rupert Murdoch might follow in the path of Conrad Black. However, if Andy Coulson should find himself in the cells, and James Murdoch is under investigation, who knows where it might end?
And sadly the answer is probably yes.
Because let's face it eh?
If the bully Harper can pose as a nice guy.
Rebekah... Rebekah... Rosebud... Rosebud...
Please sir can I have MORE ????
