Now most of us, me included, would ordinarily say that this odious Aussie is only one step up from Robert Maxwell in the serpent stakes, and we’d all be quite happy if he went the same way as that other megalomaniac media mogul, but after moving abroad my views have tempered somewhat.
Why I hear you cry? Well, imagine suffering a TV diet of permanent Cantonese tosh and you’d soon be committing hari kiri I can tell you. But thanks to Murdoch’s 2 Star Sports channels (the Asian equivalent of Sky), this weekend I can look forward to:
Sat 8.30pm Chelski v the Ar$e on one channel, Man Ure v Leeds on the other Sat 11pm Newcastle v Boro on one, Bolton v Man City on the other All four are repeated in the day on Sunday if you want to watch all of them Sun 1.30 am and repeated at 11am Scotland v England rugby Sun 8pm Villa v Brum
Rupe, you’re all right by me, cobber .
It doesn’t replace watching Stoke every Sat’dee, but it helps to make life out east much more bearable.
A few bottles of Tsing Tao, a bowl of shark's fin soup, a plate of chicken's feet and that's my weekend sorted.
