Can we deal with your latest supplemental statement, Mr Dacre, and although Mr Grant will respond to it by way of a further statement, can I deal with two points. The latter half of your statement appears to be a further criticism of Mr Grant. Can I summarise it in this way, because of the time: that contrary to the impression he gave in his evidence about not wanting to be in the press or to have his picture taken, firstly in fact he is all too happy to be photographed, even in the street, for example, which is what you say, and second, he was keen to get himself into the media and promote his commercial ventures as much as possible. Is that a fair summary of the latter half of your supplemental statement?
