  • This seems boring – any thoughts (not the content because God help me that’s the speech but can we jazz this up?)
  • Dallas Shelby in Field notes put credit on slide – it won’t let me

  • Image? Maybe not
  • Shall I credit this? Entire speech is peppered with references to the report

  • Image?
  • Image? Can you find a picture of a Scottish football or rugby team>? They love that stuff up there
  • Image?
