It wasn't a 'rant', and it wasn't directed at anyone specifically. I think 
most people would agree that the majority of Branch Secretaries do not have 
the required experience to be able to supply the sort of data which would be 
required. I note that apart from you nobody has argued with this. That is 
not to say that there are not Branch Secretaries who could contribute, and I 
never said this. I merely said that the majority could not.


p.s. you are now moderated.
