Boris has invited Rupert Murdoch to the swimming finals on Friday, while most politicians have distanced themselves from the Murdochs and their media empire of late.

But Boris is keen on becoming PM and Murdoch will give him his backing.

It seems that what goes round comes round, but it usually takes a while longer to rotate.

I would think that Boris's high profile during these games has as good as gotten him the position of PM when it becomes available.

The only thing one can assume from the above statement is that the Venus shuttle is back up and running again.

Venus shuttle But what is connection?

I think I would prefer to have Murdoch as an ally even after everything that has happened than treat him as an enemy, and apart from that poor old Boris has this to put up with enter link description here

What I meant in a funny way by my reference to the Venus shuttle was that someone was from another planet.
