Springhead “Rupert’s Ruin”
As Rupert Murdoch has been in the news just a bit recently, a bit of topical newspaper-magnate baiting would be understandable. But no, what do we have here? Rupert Bear.
So what’s it trying to say? The much-loved children’s character Rupert Bear was afflicted by alcoholism, particularly a fondness for Springhead’s beer?Perhaps we are supposed to “geddit”.
“Rupert eh, you think we mean the bear, but really it’s Murdoch. Hur hur snurfle snurfle.”
Nah, it’s just bollocks.
