Westminster has been rocked, but expectedly so by News Corps decision to withdraw their bid to takeover BskyB, just hours before MP's will pass a Motion calling for such a decision.
The Prime Minister had clearly indicated his displeasure with the ongoing bid in the face of such controversy and criminal allegations.
The Conservative MP for Stevenage, Stephen McPartland welcomed the decision,
"I think the Prime Minister has shown strong leadership, and he has made it clear that Parliament is united".
He continued, "anyone who has broken the law, whether in the media, police or news international should be prosecuted, and feel the full force of the law".
This is all we have for you now - it's expected that the House will continue on to pass tonight's Motion - but as a famous football commentator once said, "They think it's all over!"
