Any merger arb still with that trade on the pad this morning derverves to be crushed. This isnt a surprise , the UK politicians are like any politician : their antennae for public opinion is well tuned and they will always overeact to satisfy public opinion IN THE SHORT TERM.  

(Murdoch couldnt fight this one , the pressure for the deal to be blocked was strong so was just a matter of time before the cockroach scuttled off)

Poor Rupy. He's really down on his luck these days. We should all hold a vigil for him and his sucker investors.

The fall from grace can be far, especially as Goldman steals your wallet, while you're on the way down.

Oh for a papertrail to link that maggot Murdoch to the Royal phone hacking and get the bugger up on a treason charge..

Hey -- maybe some of these arb losers might put another sort of contract out ?
