In the Sunday Times today Lord Rothermere says of selling the Evening Standard: "Along with the death of my parents, it has been the hardest thing to live through."
He also says:"Newspapers are out of fashion, but I believe their epitath has been written way too early. It is our duty to look at any offer on all of our businesses, but I can't see a circumstance where we would sell another newspaper unless there was a strategic imperative."
