  1. Grand choices and a good contrast to those of The Times, etc. who missed out Harry Hyams for starters in their business list yesterday.

  2. Another perceptive, well-considered post from the dullard down below. I see the number of his exclamation points has increased. Presumably, after five words, his vocabulary is exhausted and he has to resort to his usual gibberish. What a gallah.

  3. Incidentally. Why doesn’t he respond to Peter Wayde’s three questions posted under the “The Baroness Brady of Knightsbridge” item?

  4. Rod
    You are so dreary…..Does it not embarrass you to be the subject of ridicule?
    Glenmore is spot on….you are a dullard.
