Thursday Speaker: Old Holborn

Old Holborn is the name given to a brand of tobacco, a substance I cannot talk about in case that is seen as advertising, which would be illegal on health grounds. Instead, let’s talk about Old Holborn the man. Appropriately, they (that is, Twitter) have tried to ban him too. More times than I am…

Thursday Speaker: Nick Cowen

The leadership is understood to be…

Thursday Speaker: Syed Kamall

There is a hymn that talks about the torture and death of an historical figure on a hill “without a city wall” which I was made to sing when I was about seven. I can still remember Mr Woodnut explaining the unusual use of “without”. Hills, while not commonly known for having walls around them are nevertheless quite…
