The question everybody is asking? Why are Bates & Co being so secretive? The answer I thought is very simple! If I was doing something, or pretending to do something and not having the results I would like I would shroud my doings in secrecy! Why? So that nobody would know whether or not what I was doing was, planned, what I really intended, getting the results it should or plain simple because I have not got a clue as to what I should do Next! there are probably more reasons for keeping something cloaked in secrecy, but that just a few of mine!
