It was regrettable to read your comments on this forum covering a number of topics,
which seem to have come out of the blue.
The comments made to John Wood are unfair, as in the view of most reasonable people
here he made no mention of David Connelly or his federation. In fact all I believe he was
doing was to ensure the forum concentrated on more relevant issues than the BAJR
federation. I still canít fathom the reason why you made these comments in the manner
you did. While I am sure that they are your personal beliefs and comments, some people
might believe they are driven by another agenda, which of course would be unfair.
If there are personal issues between David Connelly and John Wood I am sure they are
both well equipped to deal with these issues on a one to one basis without the forum been
used to stir unnecessary bad feelings.
In regard to your comments on the Archeologically sector, Gary how can you hope to
convince us that you are serious in forging a partnership when you make statements that
I found offensive, unfair and unhelpful. I believe constructive criticism is much more
advantageous to all concerned and helps build respect.
In regard to the CBA and IFA both of which I am a member, I am not aware of any
problems with the founding of the BAJR Federation. If you are indeed aware of comments
or actions that might show otherwise then I believe you should clearly state them.
I agree with the comments made by a previous contributor that the target customer will
decided if it will be successful. That is some thing we should be proud of within the UK in
that we have the option of choice, free speech, and association. That must be something
that all in the profession needs to respect and not take umbrage with person opinions on
I just hope that people making postings on the forum carefully consider their comments
and try to make them constructive to advance the debate rather than distract from it
