Booming, still here...
Analysts are now telling us that this country of ours is experiencing a baby boom. The last baby boom that I can remember was blamed on the black-out years during the 1939-1945 war, so if the predictions of would-be Mystic Meg – aka, Mr Godfrey Bloom MEP – that because of a gas and fuel crisis, we are to be plunged into total darkness in 2015, is true, future generations of overworked schools and teachers won’t know what’s hit them.
Incidentally, may I put quite a few people’s minds at rest that I am at the time of writing alive and kicking. They should have known better when my name appeared in the obituary columns of The Press this week that I was never smart enough to become a wing commander or be awarded the MBE.
