Jerry you are right to pick me up on this point.You have exposed a
muddle in my thinking that has generated some sloppy sentences and has
very much detracted from what I was trying to say. My apologies to
Nicky also. I now need to consider where the confusion lies and try to
make my point again. My last 4 paragraphs I think are ok though.

Best wishes,
