At risk

Well first of all to the victor the spoils - congratulations to Ed Miliband.

He took a risk, a reckless risk, in going for broke against News International. It looks like he's may have won and that News International could be too weakened to get its revenge. ( Though perhaps it just looks like that. )

But now the left have blood in the water and Cameron has let lose the wolves the drama will attempt to move to the US. The vehicle for this will be the 9/11 victims.

Can that new magic political formula of having the best victims to pluck the public's heart string work in the US ? They'll sure give it a go.

The ultimate prize ? Fox News.

The left wing establishment across the globe hates Fox with avengeance. The left's march through the institutions mean they control broadcasting in many countries ( certainly they have the BBC in their pocket ). Only Fox is outside their control and here is the opportunity to destroy free ( or even diversity of ) thought across the globe - they won' pass it up.

This is why Mr Cameron should have put up more of a fight.

Further: Similar concerns but focused on media freedom are made by Donald Blaney here

And more recently - the same point as this post with more research and words.... Anne Applebaum in the Daily Telegraph.

And now Tim Stanley (who can't be as young as his photo suggests ) The 9/11 phone hacking investigation: it's Murdoch and Fox News who could be destroyed, not the Republicans.

The right wing press is on the way out and then we can all live in Leftland. How wonderful.

Sorry for being totally off topic on this one, but are you doing your "Silly Week" montage this year.

Yours Aye

Ah yes - Silly Week, I was wondering if anyone would ask about that.

Yes why not ... lets go for the week beginning 1St August - bugger all will be happening then.

Graphics and stuff to follow in a post next week. ( Bit busy this weekend. )
