Vince Cable has “declared war” on Rupert Murdoch, the media tycoon, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.Does anyone think Vince was wrong?
The Business Secretary indicated that he would seek to block Mr Murdoch from taking over BSkyB, the satellite broadcaster that he already partially owns.
The disclosure is the second revelation in extracts from a covertly recorded conversation between Mr Cable and two undercover reporters from this newspaper posing as Liberal Democrat supporters in his constituency.
“You may wonder what is happening with the Murdoch press”, Mr Cable said. “I have declared war on Mr Murdoch and I think we’re going to win”.
