Media: Chatter

"As a Leeds United fan, I want to be remembered at Channel 4 as a Don Revie, not a Peter Ridsdale." - The Channel 4 chief executive, Andy Duncan, uses a football analogy to argue for government handouts

"My epitaph will read: 'This is a man who wanted to build the best advertising and services company in the world.' Not the biggest, necessarily, but the best." - Sir Martin Sorrell's thoughts are already turning toward immortality

"Aegis is a nice company - an attractive way to strengthen us. But neither today, nor tomorrow, would we pay above 140p. If tomorrow there was a bid at 150p, we would not make a counter-bid." - Maurice Levy, the chairman of Publicis, takes his ball home after weeks of speculation over a bid for Aegis.
