What is it that makes Rupert Murdoch tick? Like him or loathe him, Rupert is a winner. Rupert.....? Yes, Rupert! Who on earth gave him that moniker?
Well.....his parents.....I assume.
So instead of receiving a legacy on their deaths, Rupert was given a leg-up at birth because I subscribe to that old Johnny Cash hit – A Boy Named Sue.
You know the one where the father walked out having figured that if his son was going to survive in this bad old world, he would need something to toughen him up and so called him Sue.
Rupert? In Australia?
(Apologies to Ruperts everywhere.)
