Today is a very, very slow news day, so it comes down to this: A Murdoch story. Sorry to infect the blog this way, but you gotta do whatcha gotta do:
LONDON (Reuters) - Two top 10 shareholders in BSkyB will vote against James Murdoch remaining as chairman of the company at its AGM on Tuesday, according to newspaper reports.
The Sunday Telegraph said Legal and General (L&G) will vote against Murdoch, while the Sunday Times said Kames Capital has urged Murdoch to quit. A third big investor, the Local Authority Pension Fund Forum (LAPFF) is also set to vote against Murdoch’s re-election.
He’s crying all the way to the bank.
That was today’s Quickie. Will you still respect me in the morning?
