The politics of vengeance, a committee of MP’s has decided, by a split decision, to make the most damning criticism of Rupert Murdoch possible and way beyond their brief and stating that Rupert Murdoch is not a fit and proper person to run a global company but is this one of the biggest acts of vengeance ever within UK politics?Most of the MP’s who make up our politics have no experience of management at a senior level, particularly in the Labour Party because their background is normally skilled or Union based, so exactly what qualifies them to reach such a damning verdict which they were not asked to do?
It should be noted that the committee did split, it was not unanimous, the slight majority delivering the verdict were led by the Labour committee members, in fact it split on party lines but why when Parliament is united on clearing up the sleaze within our Newspaper industries and the answer is vengeance, the Labour Party will never forgive Rupert Murdoch for not supporting them at the last general election and they are taking their revenge!

It is obvious that Newscorp have been very bad boys and deserve telling punishment but what Newscorp were up to was endemic throughout the newspaper industry, they may have been more aggressive but they were inevitably in company but before we condemn we should remember a few things, which are fact:
