I like Mr Boyle's work very much, so I am sure it is going to be great.  If, however, he is still in need of a really top-drawer beginning, my Shane MacGowan idea is still available.

Just drop me a line Danny and, for a packet of chocolate buttons and a walk-on role for me, it's all yours.  You can even develop it into a ceremony lasting longer than four minutes, if you wish.
