Motion text

That this House praises radio presenter Colin Murray for his principled stance in quitting his morning radio show on TalkSPORT following its parent company's buyout by News Corp; notes that he considered his position unsustainable due to the future working relationship between TalkSport and The Sun newspaper, which News Corp also owns; recognises that his departure was motivated by The Sun's coverage of the Hillsborough disaster; and expresses admiration for his reference and loyalty to the 96 victims of Britain's worst ever sporting disaster.
