Former Canadian media mogul Conrad Black has never concealed his contempt for his Aussie contemporary, Rupert Murdoch. But now Connie has really dropped the gloves.
"He's a psychopath ... like Stalin, except that he doesn't kill people," Lord Black was quoted in The Independent newspaper.
"I'm not suggesting he's a homicidal psychopath - he just severs people out of his life like that.
He said the public outcry over revelations of phone hacking within News Corp was "one of the all-time backflips of hypocrisy".
"For 40 years (the establishment) knew how Murdoch ran his company and they did nothing but kiss his undercarriage," Lord Black said.
"Mr Murdoch is a psychopath, a person of no emotional or ethical thought, governed entirely by an expedient analysis of what his self-interest requires."
Hey, wait a second - a person of no emotional or ethical thought, governed entirely by an expedient analysis of what his self-interest requires - isn't that the very job description of our Conservative prime minister?
Rupee has of course fallen from grace with the ever pompous British aristocracy which his Lardship, Mr. Black has just announced his interest in cozying up to once again.
Huh. From the "Takes one to know one" department.
A typical story from the "Pot and Kettle" file! In this case the Pot IS Black!
