Just read this and thought of ATS.
Make of it what you will but another major player is stepping down for no apparent reason other than the lame one presented by the MSM.

Not saying that Ben Fulford is the second coming but I also am not ignorant enough to just dismiss his claims because my ego will not allow me to change what I think I already know. This is interesting to me and I hope it will be to you as well.

The phone hacking scandal has been a massive issue in the UK - certainly nothing trivial or "lame".

Whilst I would imagine that its quite commonplace in the trade, they got caught out on James Murdoch's watch.

The entire affair has been handled quite poorly on the part of News International generally as well as by the Murdochs, so this news comes as no surprise.

I hope this does not come arcoss as of topic but the picture in that article is a perfect example of two guys sucking up to their boss.

The only time they step down is when a better opportunity comes around, rebrand and come back stronger.
