      Oops, sorry I answered this question "Would you be prepared to cancel your Sky subscription if Rupert Murdoch were to be allowed to purchase the rest of BSkyB? " [no]

      I don't believe News Corp should drop it's attempt to buy BSkyB. However, I do believe the government (or Ofcom or whatever) should kill it stone dead.

      I might cancel Sky - and become a Virgin - if they put up subs 25+ %

      It looks like the Murdochs have used the problems with NoW to try and look good. Many think this is a cynical ploy to get rid of the NoW and replace it with a seven day Sun, which has been their intention all along. I have no sympathy for the Murdochs, but I have for the several hundred employees who had no part in the allegations being made. It is a great pity that their livelihoods are being put in jeopardy due to the actions of a few individuals several years ago.
