Reading Richard North first thing in the morning on any day is the equivalent of taking a shower - a really cold shower, you know, a nut-shriveling, freezing, cold shower. But today you have to break the ice! To be honest, it's not entirely his fault because he is merely repeating via YouTube a broadcast from the BBC in which a very amiable cove, a 'city slicker' by trade, commits the ultimate sin, he tells - The Truth - Shlock-Horror! Provided you have fortified yourself with a good lunch I urge you to take a look. It's worth it just to see the rather crude but useful modern word - 'gobsmacked' - enacted by the BBC interviewers - my dears, simply too, too, delicious!
I'm off to see 'Tinker, Tailor' this afternoon. Expect my report to be delivered in the usual way provided you carry out the correct protocols and remember the password!
