Ah, it’s so sweet, Little James is stepping into daddy’s big shoes, clumping round the room and shouting about the BBC. The pretense, the invasion of the broadband market by the evil iPlayer and the real reason? Public funding of the BBC. Same old story, but a new teller.

I have my doubts about the BBC’s structure and functions but I wouldn’t trust a Murdoch to tell me anything about public services or market competition.
