I really can’t understand the naivety of people. News of the World aren’t closing because it hacked, it is closing because Rupert Murdoch knows newspapers aren’t making money and was going to close it anyway.
But more importantly, whilst he was no doubt going to close it sometime, the reason it is closing now is well … somehow I suspect an awful lot of incriminating evidence that links to people higher up will somehow find its way into the bin. This isn’t a publicity stunt …
The police have hardly come out of this with any credit: it is now an open secret that the police are regularly paid for inside information. It is an open secret that Rupert Murdoch has been running the political system in Britain for years. It is an open secret that anyone who resists News International, like Tommy Sheridan will end up having their lives destroyed. It is therefore an open secret that if a proper investigation were carried out into the News of the World: delving into all its dirty secrets, then not only would a lot of criminality be discovered in the paper, but also a lot amongst the police, politicians and other public offices.
ADDENDUM – BskyB consultation closes Friday 12 noon
The Government are still looking to go ahead and let Rupert Murdoch gain more control over our media. If he does, he will wait for the dust to settle and be back to his old tricks.
