Editor’s Ramblings I must start with some desperately sad news. The Branch announces the passing of former BAE Editor Jane Brown, who died on Wednesday 30th October, and our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this sad time. Jane is remembered on page 17.

This Brexit nonsense hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t helped a lot either! So Dryanuary has â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;helpedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to almost double the average reduction in sales on the other months of the year. As for Stoptober, in 2018, I lost a third of Sales and this year, almost half ! With Dryanuary 2020 just around the corner, what do you think my chances are, bearing in mind I need to average around ÂŁ7,500 a month just to break even!
