500,000 02 customers can’t be wrong
Remember back in March, when it was announced that Sky were buying Spanish company Telefonica - who own 02 - for £200m?
WELL. Turns out there are a hell of a lot of 02 customers out there would rather eat bogies on toast than have a phone contract with Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. And unfortunately for Mr Burns, I mean, Rupert, they’re being rather vocal about it, too.
‘There have been a large number of calls,’ whispered an 02 employee, discreetly. ‘They don’t want to line Murdoch’s pockets.’
Apparently that ‘large number’ is half a million, which is less of a statistic and more like a massive mutinous vote of no confidence in the dried up old Aussie maniac.
The official line at 02 is a soothing message to these irate callers, telling them not to worry because Sky will only own 39% of 02, and they will remain separate companies.
Hahahaha. Dontcha just love a big juicy backlash? Wendy Murdoch’s karate moves are no match for this.
