Monopolies Commission

What happened to them. In theory they should be consulted when a company gets to great a market share. But under Labour, and now under the coalition, they are toothless.

Tesco can do what it likes, take over any town or region.

Murdoch controls four national newspapers and a satellite TV station. Thats too much for one man.

He did much to decide the last dew elections. Could Blair have won three elections by a mile without the support of Murdoch newspapers? And when Murdoch changed his mind, we get Cameron.

Talk about one man one vote.



Hoe come there's only one Monopolies Commission?

I think the BBC's influence over UK politics is far greater than Mr Murdoch's.

The BBC operates under influence from the govt, Murdoch can choose who he wants to form the govt.

Well I suppose this is a matter of opinion so we are unlikely to agree but I see and hear centre-left propaganda output from the BBC on an hour-to-hour basis.

I wish we had a source of unfettered, unbiased, un-spun news in the UK rather than having to take a mean average between Fox and the BBC.
