Mike Pitts Quite why Mr Pirtts thinks it is well-deserved remains a mysterty, perhaps for being part of a system which systematically failed to support the PAS with the resources needed to recorsd all that has been brought to it down the years? Or maybe allowing the national Scheme to be dismembered by dumping the problem on the BM's doorstep? Who remembers when Roger Bland got a medal (a bigger one) from the ACCG?
