‘Jonathan Attey and Angus Hunter-Smart. Both extremely competent in their fields and also personally live in rural areas, where they are involved and so understand the workings. And both full of sound common-sense which prevents forays into legal backwaters which, in the end, achieve nothing. Finally both are good at explaining the more complicated facets in understandable simple English.’
