So, Vince Cable has declared war on Rupert Murdoch.
I’ve got him worried. He’s on the ropes, and he knows it. While Murdoch has had to resort to the desperate measure of locking his so-called content behind a pathetic paywall, my low overheads mean that Gruts remains—and always shall remain—resolutely free. While Murdoch’s online readership plummets, my readership has risen by at least 10% in the last week alone. While Murdoch has tired, old hack commentators like Clarkson and Gill and Applethingy churning out pap, Gruts has Nite Owl and Zimscribe and Yoghurt and Kenny and Keith and the rest of you (you know who you are).
I probably shouldn’t be telling you this, but News International’s big-nob lawyers recently approached me pursuant re. a merger. I told them where to get off.
Not interested, Murdoch. Prepare yourself for a hostile takeover.
There can be only one winner in this game.
