z Hackney and Rupert Murdoch

Rupert Murdoch is very much connected through Hackney not just because it is where Edward de Vere wrote SHAKE-SPEARES SONNETS but because that’s where the word ‘hack’ originates – over-used horse or coach especially for hire (they were paddocked and stabled there in the NE London borough of Hackney in the old days) – hence, ‘hackneyed’; ’hack’ writer, and to more recently, to ‘hack’ into someone’s mobile phone!
