“My message to the supporters is that I’m convinced we’ll be OK.”
Asked if it was a gloomy situation, Bruce replied: “I agree with you, it’s gloomy, but I was pleased with the performance today, especially in the first hour, but you have to turn those performances into results and I’m still quietly confident we will get the results we need.”
