I can only find articles talking about Murdoch’s dismissal of the Australian allegations. There was a good bit in the FT yesterday or today, but I can’t log in to find it. Anyway, the piracy issue which has disappeared from view, quietly spread to Australia.

To put it bluntly, the geo political significance of Australia changed, That is prime and now necessary territory in the context of the current changes we are seeing. Also it’s home for our protagonist. His ability to bring David Cameron to heel and distract a deliberately malleable commentariat is not the same as Murdoch digging himself out of a hole that is getting bigger.

The Labour Ed’s may have remembered to go to Greggs, but they may regret it.
