Re: Murdoch closes The News of the World

If Linda reads that shite, then any respect I had can go south.

It's no wonder the Europeans and foreign people in general have a skewed view of the British when you see how many mongs buy the Scum and the NOTW. It's the number one fucking paper in terms of buyrates. Fucking morons.

Hopefully this leads to the Scum being shut down as well. Sick of that horrible twat and the power he has over our country. It's like he's OUR president.

Never a fan of people losing their jobs. Especially when most of the current NOTW staff had nothing to do with the phone hacking.

How would shutting down NOTW and The Sun have any affect on how Brits are viewed abroad, or stop people being "fucking morons"?

I find The Mail about a million times more offensive than The Sun.

For all that I dislike the ridiculous political bias in the NI newspapers, it's no worse than The Guardian or The Mirror.

Murdoch will happily sacrifice all his print publications in the UK if he can secure the BSkyB deals, IMO, but I don't see how that will help things.

If you read their transfer news section, you would change your mind.

I suppose you're right about the jobs although the Merseyside football writer Bascombe and David Wooding can fuck off.

Most of the British perception comes from reading the Sun/NOTW bullshit about how royalist/nationalist we should be, about how we should hate the Germans and the Argies cause we went to war with them, why we should be obsessed with who's having an affair with who and for them hyping our sports teams to astronomical levels. God save the Queen!

The Mail is Tory filth and has that twat McKenzie writing for it. Wouldn't touch it either.

The Guardian is OK, the Mirror is OK as well. Aside from the Independent, none of our publications are anything special.

I use the net for transfer news anyway. I don't buy any papers.

Do you realise how much your language just makes you look like another typical British Sun reader?

Re: Murdoch closes The News of the World

Did these people do anything Assange and Wikileaks didn't do?

Re: Murdoch closes The News of the World

Has News of the World always had a trashy reputation? If not, I feel sad that a publication that has been out that long would let themselves lapse into such a sad state as this.

From day one, 180 years ago. But it gave the Brits the news they wanted. And now the Brits are outraged, but since they made it the world's #1 paper in English, I think this outrage is mainly to convince themselves it is not their own fault.

What, do you want me to start talking like a double-barrelled surnamed squire called Quentin Farquhar-Penkethman?

I hate Murdoch and I'm embarrassed by the fact most of our population are obsessed with celebrity and royalist GSTQ nationalism shoved down our throats by the Sun and the NOTW.

It is our fault, I agree.

As for Assange, not even comparable. It's a shame your beloved Yanks and Sweden decided to conspire a made up sex claim as an excuse to arrest him.

Ah, so collecting private communications is OK with you, it's just that you want to decide whose privacy it is OK to invade?

I define it as dealing in illegally obtained private communications. Assange=NOTW.
