Yes, it's time for another 60 second interview with one of the Peace Team. This time, it's the biggest football fanatic in the office, namely, Joey Burns, Despite his team coming very close to losing their unbeaten record to St Johnstone recently, Joey is still confident that Celtic will be top of the pile next May. In between times, he does a rather good job for Peace and, as he suggests, if you're looking for a career move then you should come and see him!
