Mogul’s influence on worldwide news is unlikely to be weakened by latest defeat Rupert Murdoch’s dream of taking full control of Sky dissolved on Saturday night as he was outbid by the US firm Comcast. But anyone celebrating a setback for the mogul should be warned. The most divisive figure in Britain’s media may still have the last laugh. Murdoch’s abrasive and headline-grabbing era in charge of Sky came to an end in a high-stakes auction. There was no head-to-head face-off across a boardroom table: it was a simple email that sealed the future of Sky after a bruising battle between Fox and Comcast.

Banks and price comparison sites shouldn’t be allowed to mislead when advertising interest rates When broadband ads promise superfast connections but Bodyguard still buffers constantly on the iPlayer, then it’s right that the supplier is pulled up. Just this week Vodafone adverts were banned by the Advertising Standards Authority for misleading customers over speeds. So why is every bank and price comparison site allowed to mislead customers when advertising interest rates on personal loans? When I test-searched the comparison sites for a £9,500 loan over three years, the deals were fantastic. There were five banks jostling to give me loans below 3%. But the real chances of most of us getting a loan at those rates is as likely as finding 100Mbps broadband in the back end of the Orkney Islands. The truth is that as few as six in 100 people get the interest rate advertised. That’s according to Stuart Glendinning, who is the former managing director of MoneySupermarket.com, so he should know.

However, for young people unable to call on family or friends to front up the significant costs of moving into a rented property, the options are limited. For those straight out of education, it can be the biggest financial outlay they have had to face. A deposit of up to two months’ rent, plus letting fees, plus the first month’s rent, can add up to thousands of pounds.
