Boys Own

The chief of the defence staff in the UK is Air Chief Marshall Sir Jock Stirrup. He once saved the life of his student by piloting a twin-seater jet fighter from behind while the student lay unconscious in the front with one engine blazing with fire and unable to see out of the cockpit due to a "severe bird strike." He is now in a war of words with the former chief of the defence staff, dastardly Dicky Dannet. My money's on Blazing Jock Stirrup.

The Duke has gone

Today I waved goodbye to the bike. My life is less red but more green.

Sunday morning

Homemade tortillas, middle-class coffee and the Observer. It's my perfect Morningside Sunday morning.
