Supping with the Devil

So, Rupert Murdock will go before the Select Committee today. Not that I think Mr Murdock is the Devil but what comes to mind is the phrase 'If you are going to sup with the Devil be sure to have a (very) long spoon' .

Frankly, it's politicians that are to blame for all of this. We have seen how prone they are - within the rules dear boy - to feather their own nest from the public purse. Power is very attractive. As someone has said 'Even nice people like power' so imagine what people thirsting for it will do. They should have kept their distance.

No-one forced politicians to jump in bed with 'News Corporation'. As for the leader of the opposition Ed Milibandwagon appearing on the news with the family of Milly Dowler - it's just totally sickening. He's an opportunist of the first order, but, because he has power as well there will be those keen enough to suck up to him. Mind you others might only get close enough to stick the knife in - et tu Brutus aargh!

Why should anyone be surprised that all this Hacktivity is going on - it's always been going on. Does anyone think Rupert Murdock is the first - not at all. Remember the Robber Barons. There's a Train on the wall in the Godfather film - it's there for a reason. It's business. That's doesn't make it right. But it's just sickening to see an all out onslaught getting to the Moral High ground.

More on this to come that's for sure. I guess politicians are seizing the opportunity to stick the boot in.

The Turkey Farm is re-opening

It's been a long time of complete inactivity. The Blog has just been sitting here waiting for me to decide what to do with it. Maybe it's time to give it another go. My other Blog over on Wordpress is fine for posting more explicitly Christian related posts but perhaps an inappropriate context to occasionally vent my spleen as it were. I had thought about moving it to Wordpress but on reflection it might be better to just leave it here on Blogger but I'll see how goes as I'm used to Wordpress now.

The last few weeks of political hacktivity made me want to comment but with nowhere suitable to do it. Ah ha. Let's re-open the farm.

So that's what I will do. There's no set target for Blog posts, just as and when I feel like it. I could see if anyone comments and take it from there.

The Blog will need a bit of a tidy up (links etc) over the next few weeks - but for now it will have to do. A lot has changed on Blogger since my last post on Wednesday, August 12th, 2009 - nearly 2 years ago!! I've got lot of learnin to do.

Anyways here's the first post, not sure when the next one will be but hey ho.

This Turkey is Stuffed - for now!

I've not posted anything here for a long time. I have deleted all the posts.

I am keeping the name though - just in case.

I have another Blog over at Wordpress and I may re-locate the farm there.

My website is HERE.
