Topping up time then following the share price fall to 325p. Guess they have just found base camp around placing level and nothing more untoward than that. Just a few, won't go mad, into the patient drawer.

Very disappointed that there are was no Private Sharehoder subscription on offer here. I would have liked to top up at 324p like the newbies. I wonder if Institutions have possibly been selling down from 350p whilst able to buy back at 324p. Disapplication of pre emotion rights always seems to end this way...for PIs ...dilution of my assets. I intend to get even...I will vote against and top up below 324p ....hopefully.
