The AITC has asked me to speak at a roadshow on the day the board wants us to meet to discuss this possible bid. I don’t think the bid could come to anything – we’re at a 6% discount as it is.

Have you seen the Rio price? Those purchases are looking seriously good. Do you want to take some profits or are you happy to sit tight?

Still nothing from MM, but great news from Citywire. They’re prepared to give you a rating, despite not running the Value Driven fund for a year or so. Apparently, they can take into account the money you looked after before you took it back.

Come off it – you must have realised I was married. As for my excuse at Cheltenham, I’m hardly going to announce to a box full of people I know that I shouldn’t have been there with you. Let’s meet up when I’m down for golf next.

Now the old tax year is behind me I fancy some relaxation. Any chance you can get some time off in early May? If you can, I’ll book us somewhere nice – Spain, perhaps. It should be warmer and I can get in some golf.

I know the last time we got together the circumstances were far from pleasant, but the regulator was leaning on me. Anyway, I see you’re something of a star these days. Let’s meet and bury the hatchet.

To be continued…
