Thank you. That's clear. Then the final point, if I may, paragraph 48, where you deal with the issue of concentration of power, which you have addressed under paragraph 47:

"Power without hindrance is bound to be poorly exercised. It is doubly important to protect against abuse of power when it concerns the rights of others or information provision, and triply so when it is directly allied to opinion-forming about our democratic process. One man, one vote is a principle we have long accepted. One man, many newspapers (plus satellite television ownership) is a very different principle. It is important that such great power is not abused."

Is there anything that you would wish to add to that?
