John Ward – Our Money, Their Egomania : The Disturbing Link Between Mario Draghi, Angela Merkel, Barack Obama, Nicolas Sarkozy, Rupert Murdoch, Boris Johnson, John McCain, David Cameron, George Osborne, Tony Blair, Connecting For Health, And HS2 – 8 February 2015

dambrokeThe time has come to ask two questions of our oligarchies: Are you being serious? And What TF is going on?

You see, the thing is, it’s all about geopolitics really. Well…and oil, too. Geoilpolitik as German academics might say. But the major problem with reducing this sauce down to one word is, it doesn’t get us anywhere: we still have no idea what on earth’s going on. Continue reading

John Ward – Life Under The Knife For David Cameron, Ed Miliband, George Osborne, Nigella Lawson, Rupert Murdoch, And Russell Brand – 8 May 2014

JohnW….Ed Miliband is backing David Cameron’s plan for tougher sentencing on the use of knives. “I’m in total agreement with the Prime Minister on the need to reduce knife violence,” he told a press conference this afternoon, “it must be stamped out”. Westminster sources later confirmed that equal sentences would be handed out whether Leaders had been stabbed in the front or the back. Continue reading

John Ward – Perversity And Press Freedom: For God And Prince Harry! – 25 August 2012

(Lucas : I mostly have to laugh at the cynicism and sarcasm John accumulates in his posts, it is so much over the top it becomes funny, like a slapstick movie.)

Have you evvah seeeen a grownmannaked, Rupert?

It’s been a helluva week for royal stories, and a timely reminder that the Murdoch cancer is still among us. But if nothing else, the varietal sweep of history has been both fascinating and hilarious.

Other Windsor soap episodes aside this week, I’m a little suspicious of the one about Richard III having been buried in a car park. I mean for one thing, in those days they didn’t have cars did they? Right then. So that’s all that bollocks deconstructed. Continue reading

John Ward – Exclusive : Hunt Business Links To Newscorp Revealed – 24 May 2012

Educational product cooperation laid bare, raising doubts about Murdoch influence on Gove’s school reforms.

A Slog exposé Special

Hunt…a lot to explain at Leveson

Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt has direct and potentially very beneficial partnering links with the Newscorp empire run by Rupert Murdoch. He has never declared these – which, for a Minister of the Crown appointed to independently adjudicate on the success or failure of a crucial Newscorp bid, is an obvious abuse of his position. Continue reading

John Ward – Hackgate Day 486 : A Mad Vixen Giggles In Court – 12 May 2012

Various media across the world referred to Rebekah Brooks’s appearance at the Leveson Enquiry on Friday as ‘a grilling’. Bollocks. It was anything but.

Throughout her evidence, this ghastly woman found difficulty in holding back an understated yet utterly twisted smile. At no point in the proceedings was she caught out or ill at ease. She complained constantly that she did not have access to her diaries and notes. I waited in vain for somebody in authority to ask her why not. Continue reading

Alana Horowitz – Rupert Murdoch Attacks Google, Obama In Pro-SOPA Twitter Rant – 16 January 2012

Rupert Murdoch

The Huffington Post    First Posted: 1/15/12 02:45 PM ET Updated: 1/15/12 04:01 PM ET

Rupert Murdoch sounded off on Saturday about the White House’s rejection of SOPA and PIPA, the controversial anti-piracy bills currently being debated in Congress.

“So Obama has thrown in his lot with Silicon Valley paymasters who threaten all software creators with piracy, plain thievery,” he wrote on Twitter. ”Piracy leader is Google who streams movies free, sells advts around them. No wonder pouring millions into lobbying.”

Murdoch has lobbied aggressively for the bills, which many critics call web censorship. On Saturday, the White House announced that it would not support the legislation.

Supporters of the legislation–including Murdoch’s News Corp, which owns 20th Century Fox films and various successful TV shows–argue that the bills would help protect copyright.

Google is one of the most vocal opponents of SOPA and PIPA. Co-founder Sergey Brin has saidthat the bills “give the U.S. government and copyright holders extraordinary powers including the ability to hijack DNS and censor search results (and this is even without so much as a proper court trial).”
