GUEST,Steamin' Willie BS: The latest (Rupert) Murdoch Menace (73* d) RE: BS: The latest (Rupert) Murdoch Menace 18 Jan 11

Can't eat principles, M'Unlearned friend.

People want media. People want TV shows on demand, a daily newspaper so they can get all angry and they want high definition toys in their living room.

Denying them what they want sounds a bit Puritan to me. How the hell do you know what I want? or my neighbour? or your neighbour?   

To get it, you need commerce. You need industry and yes, you need entrepreneurs. The dirty digger does need his wings clipping in more ways than one, but that is my opinion, not my plan of attack.

Principles versus profit eh? If profit was my only vice, I would vote to string him along till the bid came with him crying. As it is, I find his political slant on his business somewhat odious and have wanted to offload the shares for some time.

However, and this is the rub... Whilst I don't want these shares because of my principles I suppose, I draw the line at selling them at a loss.

You know what that makes me?
