What was the old song? ‘War? What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!’ Whoever wrote it must have been a pessimist or a successful loser. It’s all about winning and certainly not to be on the losing side. You don’t go to war unless you think you’re going to win. Two possible winners? No! Ultimate […]

So, what’s all the fuss about?’ ‘I think I’ve made a huge breakthrough.’ ‘Hope it’s legal, this time.’ They both laughed loudly. ‘I missed your humour, Robert. Do come […]
