British MP Tom Watson, who became a hero to many for his pursuit of News International over the phone hacking scandal and his grilling of Rupert and James Murdoch at inquiries related to the scandal, has announced via a series of tweets that he will be visiting Australia during the election campaign to counter Murdoch's influence. 

Upon hearing of the visit, News Ltd newspapers published a series of editorials slamming the visit, saying, "What right has some foreigner got to try an influence an Australian election?"
