Thanks for these Simon. Timing will just not allow for a meeting of such people before the 20th, so I will put this idea on hold just for now. We may well try and do something at the beginning of February.

I also want to involve some of our 2nd string players as well, like BRE, CGU, CCMS AEA Technology and NRI.
