Poster seen in East London:
The picture, of a younger, still hair-blessed and virilish Rupert M, has been plastered with a sticker that reads:
"What a Jeremy Hunt"
It refers to the U.K. Culture Secretary. According to the Washington Post
, News International pushed Hunt to refer its bid for British Sky Broadcasting Group Plc to regulators. And it also refers to a famously stunning spoonerism by the BBC presenter James Naughtie (!) when he oops introduced the Culture Secretary as Jeremy Cunt, live on air. (It's fabulous: watch/hear
; he slips, then coughs and half splutter/laughs.) The poster is a wicked grafittism, quite
ungentlemanly, of course, and surely to be disdained from a great height, but it could be worse
Also, as we all know, the Telegraph
reported Elisabeth Murdoch "told friends that [NI CEO] Mrs Brooks had “f---- the company”. Murdoch biographer, Michael Wolff, has twitted
a correction as to its intrasibling nature:
Reports Elisabeth Murdoch said Rebekah Brooks "fucked the company" are incomplete. She said: "James and Rebekah fucked the company."
James as in Murdoch, so there.
