The Enclosure Of The News

Thought for the day.
The BBC is a common good held in common by the British people.
Plutocracy's historic hatred of the British people gaining any benefit from any property they hold in common, from there being something from which it cannot profit, led first of all to the mass enclosures of the 18th Century, described by G. M. Trevelyan as 'the radicalism of the rich at the expense of the poor', and to the privatisations which started in the late 20th Century and which are still ongoing.
By attacking the BBC, Sunny Jim Murdoch has revealed that he wants to enclose the news media.
Discuss.

I hope you approved of my Biased-BBC piece on the subject. Murdoch only objects to the vast BBC behemoth because it's not News Corp.

Laban,

Of course I approved. It was very good.

Incidentally, I do apologise for the rather scratchy tone I may have adopted in your own comments boxes recently, the consequence of being a little, well, scratchy these days. Respect, bruv.
