When David Cameron was asked did he ever discuss the BSkyB bid with News International, he said “I never had an inappropriate conversation.” It would be interesting to know whether he had an “appropriate” conversation about it with Rupert Murdoch when they met after the recent British election. Murdoch, who was asked by Cameron to go in the back door, said they had a cup of tea and volunteered “no other conversation took place” which was interesting. He was asked to go in the back door and they just chatted about the weather?
The British Parliament is now off for its summer break. But the investigations will go on for some time. I will be in Britain this winter and look forward to dropping in for Prime Minister’s Questions. It should be interesting.
