Rupert Murdoch has waded into the row over whether LGBT campaigners should be allowed to join a St Patrick's Day Parade.

The media mogul suggested on Monday that Irish people should boycott Guinness, after the company pulled its sponsorship of the New York parade amid outrage gay and lesbian people could not identify themselves as such during the event.
