Just a short clip from the playwright's last interview. More eloquence and humanity in the whole interview than in the whole of Rupert Murdoch's lifetime...

Mark Steel in today's Independent:

'The only thing that tarnishes it slightly is now everyone hates Murdoch. It's like when you follow an obscure band and they become famous. Suddenly politicians who've spent their careers prostrate before him are shocked at how dreadful these revelations are. This astonishment might be reasonable if News International was run by Susan Boyle or Dame Judi Dench, but this was RUPERT BLOODY SODDING BLOODY MURDOCH YOU IDIOT.'

[...]

'But despite this, every day is glorious for those who've watched Murdoch's organisations bend governments, cheer wars, support massacres and smash unions, because he's on the run, stumbling like a dictator whose rule is under threat, bewildered as to why people don't bow to him anymore. And as a bonus it seems every day someone else unpleasant gets dragged into trouble, so by the weekend I expect to see Chris Moyles being asked to resign, and pressure being put on the bloke who cut me up as I was turning into Streatham High Road.'
