Rupert Murdoch is “not a fit person” to run a major international company, a report by the media select committee report today concluded, but descended into acrimony and accusations.

No more NEETs: A plan for all young people to be learning or earning This paper sets out a strategy for radically increasing the proportion of young people who are learning or earning, by fixing the broken school-to-work transition system and establishing a distinct work, training and benefits track for those aged 18–24.
