In defence of the realm

I meant to post this ages ago …


A scurrilous rag was shut down yesterday. It is one of the largest selling paper in Britain, which says a lot about Britain. A related paper the Sun can't be sold in parts of Liverpool. Some of the sordid things the rags got up to were illegal spying worthy of the US secret service. What enchanted me was the defence put up by the woopert in charge of the Mordoc Empire of the promoted creature in charge at the time that the phone of the murder victim Millie Dowler was hacked.

It came out as:
"Gabbly gabbly gabbly.
Gabbly gabbly goo.
Gabbly gabbly gabbly.
Gabbly gabbly goo."

A brilliant sound bite, IMNIO.
One would have thought that with all the stars in the Mordoc firmament, he could have found one that wasn't worthy of the front desk of the Nudes of the Word.

I'd never heard the woopert speak until yesterday. Obviously neither had his scriptwriters.
It will be interesting to see how the future for the troubled minion plays out.
Fed to the pet no doubt. (After a sensible time lapse of course.)

The revenue from the paper chopped trickled to nothing when several large advertisers reviewed their portfolios. The company is an octopus though and it will fall out their pockets like small change. The company was able to subvert civil rights in the US along with the so very few other mass media companies under the ministration of Dubya.

So nothing changes.
Wait till they grab hold of the Net.

Some headlines:
Goodbye cruel World
Hacked to death

Piquant, the scurrilous rag made the name of Mordoc as a exposer of corruption and secrets and lies.
One has to wonder what Satan showed Jesus when he offered him the world. What we know is that afterwards Jesus taught his followers to shout from the mountaintops what they hear whispered in secret.

It make you a target and thus extra careful. I suppose that failure to pay attention to ones' self is a failing for large busmesses as much as for individuals.

  1. Apparently you can make a fortune from nothing in Australia, come over to Britain and buy The News Of The World and go on to make a super fortune and not ever get told what happens in the newspaper business.When asked by the British Government what the hell he thought he was doing, Report Murky said it wasn't possible to keep himself up to date on what is going on in his empire. I suppose he means that he just had to promote all concerned in the manner of the old adage "you keep your friends close"?For that is how he treated everyone who had a hand in the dirty deeds. (I suppose by that calculation, Retchard Noxious was clean after all, despite what all those tapes that never got heard had to say about him?)It isn't at all likely that he had to promote all concerned so that they would feel more loyal when the dirt started flying?He wasn't "keeping his enemies closer"?I suppose they aught to call this the y'Whatergate affair?Or the NoonetoldmeergateMate?I find it extremely difficult to believe that there was money and largesse in such splendour to help the police with their enquiries with and nobody with the wit to ask for it from the boss. Didn't the paper ever get an audit?This was going on for most of a decade. And that's just the stuff we know about. Every crime in Britain had a convoy of reporters in on the denouement, when the bust came. Who held the One Ring to bind them?They knew every dirty little secret that every dirty little celebrity would rather keep quiet about, even stuff about politicians' children that only they and their doctors knew about -and Mordor's Nazgûl, of course.

    Politicians appear to think that businesses should be run with so much control from the top that no one can ever make a mistake. This explains why governments are so awful at running things. Trusting people to do a good and honest job is a critical part of how good organisations function. Being trusted to do our jobs also happens to be a critical part of why any of us enjoy going to work.But it does raise an interesting question: how much detail should a CEO have in his or her grasp?On Tuesday we had a politician suggesting that James Murdoch should have read every piece of evidence himself. Earlier in the day, John Yates, whose primary role was being responsible for counter-terrorism in the UK, was repeatedly asked whether he had personally re-examined 11,000 pages of evidence to do with the phone hacking case, in response to a single article in the Guardian. These people are paid to prioritise. It’s the managers who can’t prioritise that clog businesses up.

    http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/technology/alexisdormandy/100006779/a-ceos-command-of-detail-what-rupert-murdoch-should-and-shouldnt-know/I would have thought a politician would expect a CEO to look very closely at everything that one his newspapers was getting up to especially when the Metroplolitan Police (Scotland Yard) are concerned, court cases are rife and the people in charge are being promoted to high office in the News Corp corpse.Wouldn't you?I'd be pretty thick to let it slide to the date I was due to answer to Parliament. How could a case get to Parliament like this did? It is a rare occasion I can only recall happening once or twice before.It is akin to the Nixon and Clinton eras when those fools were called before their own national governments.

  3. I've just passed a hoarding advertising Sky sports channels.I'd love to graffiti it with a question:

    Do they do your e-mails for you?

    You'd have to be a few pence short of the full postage to use Robber Mordor's e-mail.
