MONDAY 13th DECEMBER 1999: Briefing the Boss
I brief Bernard on the Exco meeting. He is annoyed we didn't have time to do some lobbying beforehand, which is the best way to handle these meetings apparently. I'm not sure however whether he is pleased or disappointed he missed it! We now need to get around the guys who kicked up a fuss as soon as possible. It looks like Thursday is the first day we can do the rounds.
