I too am delighted about the success of Essex, not least because, like Somerset, they have so many home-bred players.

Between now and the end of the season I am overseeing emergency legislation that will ensure that this season four sides will be relegated from Division One. These will be:

Warwickshire: because they're not very good and Giles is a mid-season poacher
Middlesex: for their chicanery last season
Yorkshire: ditto
Hampshire: because they should have been relegated last year.

I propose that the following sides from Division Two are promoted:

Nottinghamshire: because they are good
Worcestershire: ditto
Northamptonshire: ditto
Kent: because they should have been promoted last year in place of Hampshire
Durham: because they did not deserve to be relegated last year

That means that there will be nine sides in each division next year and we shall revert to playing sixteen matches for each side in each division.

All problems solved at a stroke of my legislative pen.
