      Mine are a birthmark somewhere on my head. They look like a '7' but you'd need to understand Arabic numerals to appreciate that they are actually three 6s.

      I don't see any way that Murdoch can take over BSKYB now, not with all that's coming out. I have just watched Sky News and the women on there must have been instructed by Murdoch as boy o boy did she have a go at someone from the Guardian " So you are taking the blame for NOTW closing " . Then she asked the Shadow Minister DMCS which other papers did he want to close and if he wanted to close Sky News lol

      Lets face it; the longer this saga goes on, the more it is going to cost the Murdoch family, News International & News Corporation.

      The ITV News Channel closed because it lost money and was never profitable. Viewer figures were low.

      If Murdoch were to take over BSkyB, then actually Sky News would become independent of BSkyB and Murdoch would lose his influence on the channel. So why is she so worried?

      Sky News would never survive on it's own without our subscriptions to Sky.

      NewsCorp has now withdrawn its assurances that Sky News would be floated off on it's own and now has triggered an investigation by the competiton commission which will take 6 months to a year to complete.

      Although the deabte in parliment was interesting, the shadow cabinet looks bored as hell with them bitching that the PM wasn't there.
      Looks like they were in power so long they forgot that they don't have any work to do now and just hang about parliment.

      It was quite noticeable in Parliament that the Government front bench was severely under-manned and the ones that were there were nobodies. Apart from the PM, who was making another meaningless speech at Canary Wharf, where was his Deputy, the Chancellor and the Home Sec? Didn't they think it important enough to turn up? I think it may have been a ploy which allowed them to put a Minister in charge with a 'quasi-legal position' which permitted him to fob off just about every important question with " Due to my legal position...I can't answer that".
