Murdoch soft peddling on Lisbon…

Over at Comment is Free I argue that the innate (small ‘c’) conservativism* of the Murdoch press seems to have left them curiously ‘unmanned’ in their Euroscepticism this time out with Lisbon… Which suggests his Irish readership is not as passionate about voting no as it was last year…

* A conservatism that does not seem to stretch to the WSJ Europe, for a serious paper that sells poorly in Europe, its Eurosceptic line is not helping win readers.
