Yeah I'm almost certain in my mind that the Comms appointment is more critical than the new manager at this very moment in time. There is currently a press frenzy and we've all been sucked into it, inclucing the SOS guys. They have in fact just managed to stoke the fire a little more.
I'm quite happy to let FSG do their thing and appoint the people they see fit to move forward. I'll put this argument into a new thread for discussion
