The real phone hacking issue. Who runs Britain?

Is it a democratically elected government and parliament that is accountable to those who elected them? Or is it a right wing media mogul who isn’t even eligible to vote in this country yet through his media empire has been able and allowed to set the nation’s political agenda for nigh on three decades?

Worse is the realisation that far too many of those same elected politicians and government ministers have placed more of a priority on winning and maintaining the approval of the Murdoch press throughout their tenure in office than serving the interests of their own constituents.

    Bent cops, greedy immoral reporters, power hungry self centred politicians and a media mogul. Does that answer your question?

    No. I know the answer, I’m just wondering if others do.
