The transcripts of the official inquiry into the culture, practices and ethics of the press. More…

I'd like to move to another issue now. You've explained in graphic terms the difficulties you had with the media predominantly in the late 1980s and into the early 1990s. One of the core participants has drawn to my attention an article from 9 July 2011 where there is reference to a quotation from you:

"With the Sun's massive help, we raised over £100,000 with a campaign to save a tiddler for a toddler, a tiddler being that annoying little 5p coin, and decided to make our own TV ad."

That's a reference, of course, to the campaign to raise funds to research and prevent cot death. Is your relationship now in 2011 with the Sun and the Murdoch press different to your relationship with it in the late 1980s and early 1990s?
