Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa...... smack my botty Matron, and can I keep my trousers on and my wallets in my pockets? Hmmmm.

Not 200 years ago the First Minister of Tibet used to have an animal skin nailed to the outside of his office door to remind entrants. Remind of what ? That criminals, shits and traitors were routinely sewn into animal skins and chucked in the river. I think it's great that we don't do that sort o thing these days..... the Thames Barrier simply couldn't take it. Not only that, we don't breed Prescott- size cattle any more.
