And my congratulation to John, and Tom, too and I agree with everything
Paul and Ian say. For me it will be one of those events where people say
"Where were you when [insert name, died, was born etc etc]". Personally I
can never remember where I was when such momentous events occurred but I
doubt I will ever forget the moment this news broke.

Congratulations and thanks John
