Today the Guardian has published the correspondence between Martin Roscoe, Edward Gregson and other concerned parties - including Frances Andrade - pertaining to the appointment of Malcolm Layfield as Head of Strings in 2002. There are 45 pages. Please read.
I will write something more about this shortly. (I'm still "on holiday", btw. If anyone wants to contact me, my phone isn't working here, but I'll be back on Tuesday.)
