Mr Wilson also said the turnaround at the FTSE 100 insurer is 'intensifying'.
That is all well and good but perhaps journalists and analysts might be able to ask Mr Wilson today why the company employs a "chief bottle washer" in its UK division.

If Mr Wilson confirms Aviva does employ a chief bottle washer, perhaps he could also explain the nature of the role at the life assurer?
