For those who don’t want to read the full text there is an article produced from this work, co-authored with Kevin Hogan, which  is also entered in the catalogue, showing availability of the abstract at

There is a link to the full text of the article on the University of Wolverhampton’s website but this does not always work properly and I am trying to find out why and will then include that link too.
