How are the markets reacting to news of the merger between these two giants of the small press sector? Are we likely to see further moves towards consolidation as a result? There's been talk for example of a Bloodaxe takeover bid at Salt, or Faber wanting a slice of the emerging POD market. Back to the studio.

Mock on, mock on, but this merger is big. I've just been called to Washington to weigh in on the bailout. Right now I'm waiting for the helicopter to take me to Air Force One ...
