Rupert Murdoch, the sinister 80 year old selective amnesiac media baron has expressed an interest in broadcasting more sporting events that come bundled with free mounting civil unrest.

“So the combination of high profile competitive sport complete with the habitual ratings winner that is unfettered domestic political violence is exactly the sort of 21st Century novelty fireworks display to get News International shareholders foaming at the mouth.”
Favourites for Murdoch’s sports strife media cash are thought to be relocating The Americas Cup off the coast of Somalia, Live Speedway from Tahir Square and World Championship Weightlifting from the Argos on Enfield High Street following a computer error at the local benefits office.
