At the time I composed the e-mail above (about 15 minutes after the meeting
at which I'd been informally warned that I was at risk of redundancy) I knew
there were other people also "at risk", but I hadn't been told who or how
many and frankly at that point I didn't much CARE. I now know it's about 15%
of the total workforce, and I know a handful of the other people who have
been told they're at risk.

Thanks for everybody's helpful comments and words of sympathy.
