Now is the time for Western politicians to say NO to News International.
This one man has been able to control the agenda of the political parties of the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia. He has been able to create and destroy politicians.
This one man has wiped out the differences between the political parties. His empire has dictated the response of politicians to the created issues of the day for at least the last 30 years.
The closure of the News of the World is not enough.
Now is the time for politicians to say no to this man:
Rupert Murdoch is not a fit and proper man to take over BSkyB, not is he a fit and proper man for politicians to fawn over.
The disgrace of his paper hacking the telephone of a murdered child as well as the phone lines of war widows should be enough to end his stranglehold over politicians from both sides of the hemisphere and the pond.
