The auctioneer promises to get the process wrapped up by the evening so, with a bit of luck, you’ll be home in time to watch the Anthony Joshua fight on your newly acquired TV station.

And, disappointingly, the Takeover Panel will not require Rupert Murdoch from Fox and Brian Roberts from Comcast to turn up in person at its office to catch the auctioneer’s eye. Instead, investment bankers will relay offers via secure phone lines. But it’s
