Russ and list

Many thanks for the constructive reply, and all because I agreed with a well
written and constructive criticism on the way the Uk Healey club was run many
moons ago. Must of upset someone.

Sorry to copy the list, but surprised there are replies of this standing from
the Austin Healey club uk.

A very dissappointed
ps. thanks Alan. Norman etc for the more constructive reply.
