Sleeping with the enemy
Whilst I sympathise with anyone whose privacy has been violated by the Murdoch press, my condolence with Gordon Brown is attenuated by the consideration that he and his colleagues were in bed with the digger for years. I recall that one of Gordon's first foreign jaunts at our expense was to call upon Murdoch at his ranch. Nor in thirteen years of government did New Labour make any attempt to regulate or weaken the concentration of ownership of the media and the undemocratic power that it confers.
It's a bit late to complain now, Gordon.
