Buried on page 11 of the Guardian on 1st November is an article, extremely enlightening in its simplicity, reporting the ‘news’ that during office Blair was only too happy to do Rupert Murdoch’s bidding. According to Lance Price, former Downing Street spin doctor, Murdoch was ‘one of the four most influential people in the administration’. Never mind that he was totally unelected, not actually a part of any ‘administration’, or that he is a US citizen whose company (News Corp.) pays no net tax.
