Wil-ly A-li-ot-ti -- how the syllables trip off the tongue.  Say it to yourself out loud. Done? Now don't tell us that wasn't fun!

Caribbean transplant Mr Aliotti, one of Europe's best-named and most exciting, versatile surfers, has officially been welcomed onto the Nixon team, where he joins an illustrious list of Euro luminaries and global superstars.

A longstanding Nixon rule is that any new addition to the team must be rubber-stamped by all existing members. Presented with the Aliotti Resolution, nobody opted to use their veto . . . so he can't be a complete wang!
