about me

Hello!  I live in the UK, and work for EY.  Bridge has always been just a hobby for me, albeit a pretty all-consuming one.  I have played for England in the Ladies game.  My husband Richard Winter also plays, and has played for England in the open game.  Recently my son Danny (AKA The Hobbit) has also played in the junior team.  Our daughter Sophie has so far proved to be immune to the bridge-bug.

Bridge not a sport for VAT purposes says EU court
Thanks again Jeremy for a detailed response. I'm trying to work out whether or not the membership is increasing or declining, and from the data provided it's not clear. If the data is about active members then are we comparing 50k with 55k-8k in which case the membership ...

I'd be interested to learn about membership statistics under your custodianship. From the date you were appointed or elected (I don't know which) to the present day.

Well if you want to stand then that's great. It'd be good to have your brains at the top. Why not say so up front? What would be your priorities? Other than not litigating. I don't suppose anyone would want to litigate now, so let's hear ...

That's a narrow response to a broader question. If the shareholders don't have confidence in Jeremy and Ian then they both have to go and therefore be replaced by ... You are not explaining the by. Who is up for leading this organisation. You're not and no-one else ...
Bridge not a sport for VAT purposes says EU court
Thanks for your considered and detailed response, Jeremy. As I said upthread, it's not a real worry about other EU member states developing a less favourable approach as a result of this case, as an unintended consequence of the action taken. I don't buy the idea that this ...

Dunno what you're on about. It appears to me that you want Jeremy and Ian in sackcloth and ashes at the next board meeting, but still want them to continue leading the EBU. I don't understand what this achieves.
Bridge not a sport for VAT purposes says EU court
You say you are trying to achieve growth in bridge but this litigation has been a huge distraction for the leadership and of course the costs are evident. I don't doubt that the litigation has been part and parcel of trying to grow bridge but its time to give ...

No thanks are due. My comments are in no way an endorsement of the "tap on the shoulder" school of EBU politics or in fact an endorsement of the current regime. I am just stating the obvious that no-one wants these roles and I perfectly understand why. If Richard wants ...
Bridge not a sport for VAT purposes says EU court
Richard, are you prepared to stand to be Vice Chairman of the EBU? You are retired now, you could stand. Because unless you are prepared to stand, I don't think you should carp from the sidelines. Absolutely no-one wants to do this job, and the same goes for the ...

Don't think anything happened. You can message me perhaps with the name of the shareholder in question (now, I'm afraid in my mind permanently clad in lycra, riding the PR waves in Scarborough) and I will investigate. What an odd thing to have claimed.
