Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

several countries have a laws that say if you are found not fit and proper in one country, then you are automatically not fit and proper there also.

May the USA be one of those countries! But Roger Ales is already Chairman of Fox Television Stations, so it might not make too much difference - unless Rupert had to sell, and even then, there seems to be no shortage of rightwing billionaires.

Well curiously, the significant one here is China, which has a law that says if you are found to be not fit and proper in a major market (which it defines as US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia and India, apparently)then you are automatically not fit and proper there either.

This one court case could burn several years  and several billion pounds of investment

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
