This blog is taking a break, as is its owner. Normal service (usual tosh) will resume on Monday 19 July. Just as well as I was struggling to keep up with myself. And it will give my spoofer Iain Dale a chance to draw breath as well.
I'm going to sit in a crate for a week. And for any burglars who happen to read this (am I really calling my audience criminals?), my house (with my new telly and lovely bookshelves) is fully occupied, not least, among others, by a vicious hamster! And Raoul Moat. Joke.
