Urgent diary, urgent diary stop press. At the last minute Diary has finally received communication from Mr Ghiloni. However it seems his claim is not all the events discussed were actually leaving dos at all. Anyway in his own words:”I have read with interest the diary pieces regarding my departure from Britannic Asset Management and I thought that I should set the record straight. Yes, there have been a number of ‘dos’ so far but these have not been related to the ‘how many leaving nights does one man need…’ theme that you have been running. Rather they have been my acknowledgment of the fact that ‘my audience’ clearly wants me and I do not feel that I can let them down.At this point in time, given that I do not know what the future holds for me, I have not completed all of the venues for my one man show. There may well be more to come – either as a goodbye or as a celebration. However, I am sure you are confident the details will be available to you from the ‘sources close to the sources’ when the time comes. Indeed, a picture may even turn up.” Diary is sure that readers cannot wait to get photographic evidence of your, er, performances. Maybe the Edinburgh Fringe Festival next year. Watch this space readers.
