As expected, campaigning website 38Degrees.org.uk has launched a petition in the hope of preventing Murdoch taking full control of Sky. As I type this, the petition is getting close to its 100,000 signature total.
38Degrees.org.uk - Stop Murdoch taking over Sky
While I have signed the petition, I doubt that it'll have much success. Online petitions are hit and miss, so while we have a communications regulator that has no teeth, and a very pro-business Tory government, unfortunately it seems very likely that Murdoch's Money Vultures will gain 100% ownership sometime next year.
