Rupert Murdoch: Cameron 'Will Have to Go' if Scotland Leaves UK

By    |   Thursday, 18 September 2014 09:53 PM

If Scotland votes to leave the United Kingdom, British Prime Minister David Cameron can expect to lose his job, says 21st Century Fox Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch.

"I think that if they lose it, if they are splintered, he will probably have to go," Murdoch said Thursday on Fox News Channel's "Your World with Neil Cavuto." "I think there’s about a 70 percent likelihood."

Conservative Party member Cameron agreed to let Scotland vote on independence two years ago when polling showed it unlikely that they would leave the U.K. But as Thursday's vote approached, polls said it was too close to call. The final tally is expected to be announced early Friday.

"If it's close, and they stand by these devolution promises, which I think they have to, half his party, at least (will be) very, very unhappy," Murdoch said. "And the same exactly in the Labour Party. This has been totally mishandled by everybody from the 'no' side."

Murdoch said the vote shows an anti-establishment sentiment that is global in its popularity.

"If you take the United States and go across middle America, what do they think of Washington, and Wall Street for that matter?" Murdoch said. "People are really looking for change."
