Thank you. Paragraph 61 now, Sir John. We were referring there, in our request of you, to conversations you had, I think, with Mr Mullin MP, which were noted in his diaries. In one of these, on 5 December 2000, you were recorded as having said that you were provoked by the continual attacks on you by the Murdoch press and in the Telegraph.

You set out in paragraph 61 your recollection of that conversation, but more importantly, your view of Mr Murdoch generally. Can I ask you, please, to address that?
