For someone who politely declines to come to meetings you seem to be very keen to ask us to do more work and yet seem to jump at the opportunity to turn up simply to block something!
I made a mistake, Northern's position is in the email protag linked, sorry if that caused confusion. Any indervidual on the new-imc list can raise concerns and I would have to see a very strong change in attitude to stop me raising very similar concerns to Bart. That said I am far more up for writing a few more articles and doing some more outreach, I hope you are happy to join in with that even if meetings are not your cup of tea.
Cheerio for now,
