What a strange thread. So many questions need answering, such as:
1) Ian, why were you lot there? Who tipped you off?
2) In what way does your encounter confirm Heaney as the preferred bidder?
Surely this is nothing more than a rumour at this stage, unless you know something we don't.
As a member of the Trust I'd like to know the rationale behind this 'ambush' especially given the Chair of the ISC was there.
