I remember back in the 1970s that the late and saintly Tony Benn wanted to nationalise the Times, which was then a Paper of Record and not the rightwing rag it has become under the unpopular and undemocratic Murdoch Terror.
Maybe now is the time to nationalise the BBC properly (and maybe the Times too) to ensure their genuine integrity as impartial agents of a Courageous State.
I am as opposed to neoliberalism as anyone, but this is the sort of teenage infantile Marxism that gave it a toehold in the 1970s and led to the literal carnage of the miners in the 1980s.
I am surprised Mr Murphy has seen fit to let this comment through.

I let “it” through because I think it sound analysis based on accurate observation of what is happening in an increasingly neo-feudal society
