Very interesting. I’m not best placed to remember everything but you’d think I’d remember repeated apologies from those responsible for Marcus’s death. I don’t!

But to George Julian, my very fulsome and warm thanks. You do such an amazing job for this group of people who are often silent or silenced. They so need your voice – so generously and effectively given.
