Just before the 1997 election it was suggested to me that I ought to have got closer to the Murdoch press...I invited him to dinner, in February 1997.
(The dinner) would have contained the usual amount of political gossip, then in the dinner, Mr Murdoch said that he really didn't like our European policies and he wished me to change our European policies, and if we didn't, then his papers could not and would not support this Government.
The former Prime Minister then told the Leveson Inquiry "there was no question of me changing our policies".
Chancellor George Osborne has told the Leveson Inquiry there was no "vast conspiracy" to hand control of BSkyB to Rupert Murdoch.
George Osborne is quizzed on News Corporation's take-over of BSkyB. But the questions on Andy Coulson's appointment are still to come.
The former Prime Minister's evidence to the Leveson Inquiry has revealed how he felt 'unfairly characterised'.
