Hi Rob,

This is a snippet of what Josie from Mute wrote on the blog in response 
to ICA's official commentary of JJ's article...

"In short, this comes down to journalistic approach and levels of 
investment in a story - where the national newspapers have been all too 
happy to regurgitate the ICA's official line over the causes of the cash 
crisis, JJ has chosen an independent line of investigation and, as is 
obvious, reached some very different conclusions. Clearly then, there 
are compelling reasons for him to look to other sources to piece 
together an analysis of the crisis, rather than the ICA's own press 

'On that final point - Mute did indeed check with the press department 
as to the status of the vote of no confidence to which it received the 
same perplexingly Kafakaesque response that is reproduced in the 
article's conclusion."
