On the eve of Scotland’s vote on independence, News Corporation chairman Rupert Murdoch was on the phone from London to Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto. Said Mr. Murdoch, a man with a legendary political eye:
I think there’s meaning in this, and I think it goes beyond Scotland. There’s a great anti-establishment groundswell which is seen in this vote in Scotland. You’re seeing it here in Britain in the anti-European party, whose one single issue is to get out of Europe. And I think you’re seeing it in France with the polling for Le Pen — I don’t think she’d win, but you know.
And really, you can take the United States and go across to middle America. What do they think of Washington, and Wall Street for that matter? People are really looking for change.
