It seems the U.K.’s former prime minister Tony Blair is godfather to Rupert Murdoch’s young daughter, a fact not made public until it slipped out in an interview with Murdoch’s wife Wendy, who herself sounds like a piece of work. Could Blair’s close ties to the Murdochs explain his reported moves to stop the investigation of the News Corp. phone hacking scandal? Could the intimacy of comparably sleazy political and corporate powers impede the working of justice? Naaah, couldn’t happen.
