02:42 pm - You have delighted us long enough
BBC: James Murdoch stands down as head of News International.
James' father Rupert Murdoch said: "We are all grateful for James' leadership at News International and across Europe and Asia, where he has made lasting contributions to the group's strategy in paid digital content and its efforts to improve and enhance governance programs." He added that James would now "continue to assume a variety of essential corporate leadership mandates".

Ah, those essential corporate leadership mandates. They aren't going to assume themselves you know.

Yes, it's one of my favourite lines. So damning, so polite.

Exactly! Mine too! I love the black-and-white version of the film with Laurence Olivier and Greer Garson, and the delivery of the line in that film is the one that I hear in my head! :))

That quote is a classic, and particularly appropriate given that he says it to one of his daughters. :)

They should use that line for people who ramble on at awards ceremonies. ;)

Just thinking of the Murdoch family, the punchlines leap out at you.

He added that James would now "continue to assume a variety of essential corporate leadership mandates".

Well, it's preferable to spending more time with his family - especially in his case.

Your subject made me laugh.

So did 'lasting contributions'. Mr Bennet couldn't have put it better himself.
