Enders predicts Murdoch may bid for Sky, again...

Apologies for the lack of posts in the last 48 hours - I had to attend a few functions yesterday, including the Henley Royal Regatta. It was a fun event although the return train ride in a carriage whose air conditioning had broken down was not particularly pleasurable.

Anyway, I see that while I took a day off to enjoy a quintessentially British day out in Sahara-like conditions Enders Analysis, founded by Claire Enders, has been talking up the prospects of Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox having another crack at Sky.

In 2010, Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation (now called 21st Century Fox) gave up its pursuit of Sky amid the phone hacking scandal.  

Enders, though, is now predicting it's a matter of "when, not if" 21st Century Fox launches a bid for Sky.

Here is a key paragraph from the media " experts' " latest missive:

"With the phone hacking scandal fallout largely over and the election of a friendly government, the climate is now much more favourable to a renewed bid. With undertakings, we believe it would be approved by regulators."

And if you can't be bothered to pay for Enders's "research", Alex Spence - formerly media editor of The Times, which is owned by Rupert's Murdoch News Corporation - has written a good summary of the note for his new employer, Politico. Here is a link:


  1. Testimony On How My Life was Transform through the help of a God-sent Lender..

    Hello everyone, I am writing this Testimony because am really grateful for what Mason Diego did for me and my family, when I thought there was no hope he came and make my family feel alive again by lending us loan at a very low interest rate of 2%. Well I have been searching for a loan to settle my debts for the past three months all I met scammed and took my money until I finally met a God sent Lender. I never thought that there are still genuine loan lenders on the internet but to my greatest surprise i got my loan without wasting much time so if you are out there looking for a loan of any amount i would advise you to email Mr Diego via: { } or call (608) 728-8913 and be free of internet scams. thanks... Kathie Roper from California, USA.
