This is a remarkably well worded statement that says all the right things. I'm impressed that ROL are fighting there corner so well.
The whole situation is depressingly like a divorce between two people who, individually, are thoroughly nice but just can't live with each other any more. Alas, we, the children are the ones suffering unfairly. (Isn't it always the way). One suspects that what they are actually squabbling over is, dare I say it, trivial - (wouldn't we all like to know what exactly ?) - as with all bust ups in relationships.
I'm saddened that this is starting to look like something that is going to be painful and drawn out.
If this isn't a cut and dried legal case then both parties and their lawyers need to thrash this out around a table. The last thing we need is a long and drawn out legal dispute.
