Mr Hunt writes back by text, 012597, he says:
"Thanks, I agree nothing about BBC role in competitive market."
And then you express an opinion about it at 12598, 28 August 2010:
"My view is that MT [that's Mr Thompson's speech] was a failure, a whimper, really. It wasn't bright or inspiring in any way. The research was self-serving and laughable. He failed to respond at all to criticism that's warranted or really explain any reason why the BBC is criticised at all. He's in a trap over many things, most of all trying to whip up fears about Sky's success. I'm flying back to family in France now."
And then he replies, 012599:
"Because he trains his guns on you he failed to make his case to me."
The purpose of these texts was to see if you could find out Mr Hunt's view in relation to the BBC and Sky, wasn't it?
