Editors note Poison

Good Evening, and welcome to the belatedly published Issue #20 of the Bootleggers Buzz.

Apologies first, as seems to be becoming a trend, must come from me for the lateness of publishing. Regrettably I was called in to work this morning due to an unannounced audit and was unable to come online even to inform anyone else I would be unable to publish until late. Despite the suggestion by some that I set my standards too high and am only setting myself up to fail, I intend to coninue to set the bar at a high level, that will be difficult to get to but will be well worth it once we get there.

I will continue to strive towards my goals at the Buzz and know I have the team to back me up in it, as it is me who is letting the side down at the moment. This won't continue for long.

On to this week's issue, and some internal news for you! As part of my drive to make the Buzz more entertaining, and commercial, I have decided to introduce some weekly or bi-weekly columnists to the crew to share their opinions on the goings on of the previous week, or any issues they wish to talk about. This week I'm delighted to announce that BettyB has joined the team, and next week we also have a mystery member of staff joining the team, and I will be writing my own horrendously biased column. I have also invited a number of ex-members of staff to express their views in the Buzz but have so far been unsuccessful. Class yourself as a Bootleggers 'Celebrity'? Why not join us? I hope you all enjoy this addition.

Also in this issue, we announce the winner and explain the solutions to last weeks contest; see Afty's TV Rip offs and a Few Harmess Questions continue; as well as an off topic look at sports and specifically Euro 2012. ShyGuy, Betty, and Sulphur also bring us their thoughts on a number of elements of the game.

Enjoy the read, enjoy you week.
