Vince Cable - Stand Up To Murdoch

Post by sharonl on 16.09.10 10:34

Exciting news! It looks like our campaign to stop Rupert Murdoch taking control of BSkyB might be on the verge of a massive breakthrough. [1]

Tens of thousands of us signed the petition telling Vince Cable to stand up to Murdoch's power grab. Now the BBC has revealed leaked documents. They show that even Vince's own advisers are now telling him he mustn't let the deal go through.

This is huge progress - but we need to act together fast to stop Rupert Murdoch fighting back.

Public pressure has pushed Vince this far- a huge public letter will make it much more likely he now stands his ground. Please can you add your name to the huge open letter telling Vince to hold firm? We'll be presenting it to him next week.

It's out in the open now that Vince Cable is thinking about making a stand. That means Rupert Murdoch's army of lawyers and lobbyists will be all over Vince in the next few days, putting him under pressure to wave the deal through.

We have to make sure that Vince doesn't lose his nerve. We need to carry him towards the right decision on a tidal wave of people power.

Murdoch might be able to put the pressure on behind closed doors. But there's no way thousands of ordinary people will be signing any of his letters. A letter signed by thousands of us will remind Vince public opinion is on our side, not Murdoch's.

Add your name to the letter here:

Together, 38 Degrees members have proved it is possible to challenge the Murdoch media empire. During the election, we called out the scaremongering and bias in the Murdoch-owned press. We fought back at attacks on the BBC, and saved 6 Music. Now, we're getting closer to a people-powered win over Murdoch.

Please click here to sign our letter of support to Vince - it will be daunting for him to take on Murdoch, but he's far more likely to do it if he knows he's got thousands of us behind him:

The original email from August:


Rupert Murdoch is about to increase his stranglehold on the UK's media by taking complete control of BSkyB. He currently owns 40% and is trying to up that to 100%. This would be a disaster. It would give Murdoch even more political influence and could open the doors to biased, right-wing news reporting, like Fox News in the US. Together we can stop him.

Vince Cable has the power to stop Murdoch's plan. As Business Secretary, he's got 17 working days to call the deal in for a review. [1] If enough of us stand up to Murdoch and build a big enough petition, we can persuade Cable to block the takeover. But the clock's ticking - we have just 3 weeks to get him to act.

Take 30 seconds to sign our "Vince stand up to Murdoch" petition now:

Murdoch thinks he has this deal sewn up. There are plenty of people in government who owe him big favours after his papers backed them during the election. Add to that the full force of Murdoch's media empire and you can be sure that Vince Cable will be feeling the pressure to cave in.

We need to outweigh that pressure with people power. Thousands of us need to tell Vince Cable to stand up to Murdoch.

38 Degrees members have been challenging Rupert Murdoch's ambitions in the UK for months. Last year we fought his attacks on the BBC. During the election we spoke out against his scaremongering about a hung parliament and voting reform. Sky News' Kay Burley told us during the election that we should just "go home and watch it on Sky News". [2] We didn't then, and we don't have to now as Murdoch tries to tighten his grip on the UK.

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
