  3. The one thing you can count on Murdock to do is lie. This Sky News bollocks will be part of a plan to end up with what he wants.

    More money? Government approval of his take-over bid? Oh, wait - that's basically "more money" too...

    It smacks of an O'Leary-esque stunt to grab free publicity - like announcing that passengers will have to pay a quid a time to use the gopping excuses for lavatories on his aircraft. Oh, look - Ryanscare's being mentioned over and over again on the airwaves for days on end. Again.

    Methinks there may be more to this story than meets the eye, for it looks like there's trouble brewing at Fox HQ
     
  8. Axe Sky news.

    That means no more Sarah Jane Mee on the tv in the mornings. The gorgeous little ginger minx.

    Save Sky News.

  10. Series 1, Episode 1 - DD's character is firmly established when Alex makes George confiscate Dimbles, the forlorn teddy bear that Damien always carries in his bag, ready to "enhance" footage of tragic scenes of death and destruction. Along with the child's blood-stained plimsoll...
