Ask an artist whose work is caught up in the impasse why won't Celtic won't release the albums in the Leader/Trailer back catalogue and the answer is invariably (suitably edited): 'Sorry, I failed O-level telepathy'.

On the face of it, it makes no commercial or artistic sense of any kind and the suspicion is, therefore, that an understanding of the reasons behind the policy lies more within the province of psychiatry than music.

Are these 'shareholders' to whom Mr Tyke refers aware that artists' requests to buy back their rights are routinely refused? Can they figure out why Mr Bulmer sits on these assets 'that are not his' (according to George/Tyke) and does nothing to make any money out of them for himself, for the 'shareholders' or the artists?

Seems to me 'shareholders' have some questions to ask at the AGM. When is it, George? There is not, after all a lot of point in whingeing to Joe Offer. What can he do?
