Blog: James WilmoreFuller's... kind of like the Murdoch empire

James Wilmore | 5 April 2013

Listeners to BBC Radio 4's Today programme may have choked on their cornflakes this morning as presenter Simon Jack compared Fuller's to the Murdoch empire. 

Jack was referring to the similiarity in ownership structure between the two. 

Michael Turner, who is taking a back seat as head of the London-based brewer and pub company from July, also discussed the win for beer in last month's UK Budget and the thorny issue of minimum pricing. 

The interview can be heard here.
