Review of the panel reviews

Time for a tongue twister. Ready to review the year by remembering the (panel) reviews? Pretty partner Peter Piper pitched for a place on the panel, so please pay attention.

Let’s start with Barclays, which after a 12-month extension has kicked off its review with a new-look structure. Its new roster will be divided in two, like red lorry, yellow lorry, if you will.

And for those that want to sell seashells on the seashore, head on over to Heathrow or City Airport, which reviewed their panels in March and August respectively. Hopefully you won’t think Sicily less thistly than Thessaly.

Meanwhile, Betty Botter bought a bit of butter and had a drink from her proper copper coffee pot. So she might want to brush her teeth, bringing in hygiene giant Colgate Palmolive which added Bond Dickinson to its panel in May.

So as Santa’s sleigh slides on slick snow next week, have a look at the reviews of the year. No tongue twisters, promise.
