I've decided that I'm retiring from active service. It's time for a different approach with newer participants.
I've been thinking about this for some time but I decided yesterday.
I realised that I was writing for headlines. I pride myself on my neutrality. I couldn’t continue like this. It's better I opt out now rather than battling this drift. Had I continued I would simply have been putting off the necessary decision.
I have enjoyed my investigations, enjoyed the time - massive time - I've spent immersed in this, but I've done my bit.
So, I walk away
.... sad that there is so much to be done;
.... delighted I've made a contribution;
.... and delighted again that there is a team moving forward towards justice.
