Good evening,

I think you will have access to, and you have had an access to the welcoming speech, to all those which have been invited, which took place about half an hour ago, so I will not repeat or reiterate or elaborate what I said because you have it in front of you, and if you don’t my office would be more than happy to actually do so.

You must have noticed one or two things.
