I DIDN’T expect to be writing the word cobalt for a while after last week’s column, but it looks like that word is going to feature prominently for some time after the most recent case heard by the Referrals Committee of the IHRB in regard to the point-to-point winner Warendorf.

Once again, the verdict contained explanations which served more to confuse the issue than throw light on it, and the frustration which I expressed in last week’s column regarding the explanation of the process, if not the process itself, was repeated.
