I heard on the wireless that Cornelia Fluff

has just been appointed ‘Official Sculptor’ for the General Election. What can this mean? She’s obviously a bit

“He google_ad_client = "ca-pub-3967079123942817"; sits motionless at the centre /* 9-970x90 */ of his web, but that web has many radiations and he knows well every quiver of each of these. He

does little google_ad_height = 90; himself, he only plans, but his agents are numerous and splendidly organised.” (Conan Doyle)

Talking to Long John in The Salisbury I noticed two tickets sticking out of his shirt pocket. I enquired about them and he proudly handed them over the bar. A pair of tickets for Lord’s at £85 each. He’d just been to
