Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire……

24 Apr

As James Murdoch gave his carefully worded evidence to the Leveson Enquiry into Press Standards it became abundantly clear that he was sticking firmly to the well rehearsed company line.  His assertion that he was not aware of the scale of the impropriety, if not illegality of the conduct of News International employees, is about as opaque as you can’t get.  He carefully crafted his answers to accommodate the ‘seek no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil’ unambiguous position that effectively insulates him from any responsibility and yet we are supposed to believe that James Murdoch, who has spent his entire life being groomed like a commercial prostitute, new nothing of the seedy goings on at the News of the World……

There is also the Matter of the Innocuous Conversations he had with David Cameron and other ‘honourable’ members of HMG.  Both he and Mr. Murdoch Snr admit to having, quite literally, back door meetings with the PM.  In today’s hearing with the Leveson Enquiry he told us how he had a passing conversation with the PM at a dinner held by ex-NOTW editor, Rebekah Brookes, the timing of which could not have been any more convenient with the decision of OFCOM and the side-lining of Vince Cable.  However, we are assured that, although unable to recall what was discussed, Mr. Murdoch was able to affirm what was not……

All of this may not be on the same criminal level as HMG’s dealings with the dictatorships of the Middle East or their complicity in the ‘Extraordinary Rendition’ of UK citizens to face torture at the hands of the CIA, but stinks all the same……

Ask Yourself a Question?  Do you believe that the Murdoch empire knew nothing of the actions of their employees at the News of the World and that they held no influence over the self serving decisions being made at the heart of British politics? 

Experience tells me that this is highly unlikely; how about you?……
