Actually, Jim's not the only one - but he said what I wanted to say at least as well as I could have done.
Andrew Smith replied to a message a few weeks ago (when my email was up the creek) about the 'cosy club' in HQ. Again, he said what I felt, but much more eloquently than I could have done.
The RSCDS is our Society but it can only be as good as its members and HQ staff, working together, can make it ...
in Dublin, where it seems to be monsoon season once again.

It interests me that Jim seems to be the only person from the "other side"
who frequents Strathspey and that the two camps are quite entrenched. I
have spoken to people from the "HQ side" who find the Strathspey tenor
wearying and unappreciative in its criticism. Equally it is clear that the
like-minded Strathspeyers find the HQ side wearying in its inability to
straighten up and fly right. ... It is sad that Jim is the
only HQ person who continues to take on the rest, his voice needs to be
heard, and far more sympathetically and insightfully than it is. <Snip>
