The Takeover Panel has 'had enough' and is insisting on resolving the impasse this weekend ....

Both Parties will know by Sunday who the winner is. The public announcement could be delayed though.

Feels a bit like Season 8 Episode 8 of South Park.

There's only one winner with this... the dirty digger.

The biggest losers will be Sky subscribers - if they are daft enough to stay with it.

I wonder if they'll all be stood round a fax machine waiting for the decision with Greg Dyke ready to kick off at how stupid the process was...

Worthwhile searching Twitter this afternoon. Take your pick of those commentating there. Not seen any suggestion of a knockout bid from either side though.

You do know Rupert will get alot of money for this.. If Comcast reputation is anything, I think alot of people will leave them since there have a choice, like Sky, cable etc
