Independent view

I usually have a huge amount of respect for my colleagues who make the effort to write articles or be quoted regularly in the press. We do not have to do it and we are rarely paid to do so. I know, some of you will say we do it for our own egos but the fact is that we give up much of our time to help educate, stimulate debate or provide an alternative opinion.
