Murdoch sells out

One of the problems about the Anglosphere (here I go again) is that it seems to rely on the British patriotism of American, Canadian or Australian movers and shakers. Hence we are expected to trust the adamantine patriotism of Conrad Black's Telegraph, or any of the Murdoch press.

Now we learn that the Sun is to be edited by Rebekah Wade, who is notable for two things - organising national witch hunts against suspected Padophiles and being best friends with Cherie Blair (whether they are shower-buddies we are not told).

What this means is that the Sun will back the Euro, or at least be neutral in this, if it means that it will not lose circulation by so doing. Looks like things got a bit harder for the No camp.
