I'm lazy, but at least I'm honest and own up. I had always had it in mind to visit Jodrell Bank and the desire stretched back years. I can, just, remember the role Jodrell Bank played in the tracking of the 1957 Sputnik launched by the Russians much to the chagrin of the USA. I was not wholly aware of the significance of this tracking work but, at my local cinema, Pathé News said it was a first for Russia and implied that we here in the UK had done jolly well too, so that was good enough for me.

I assume you know that Gordon Brown has written a book on Courage? I mention this because it would, in the present climate, take real courage to be a political party fundraiser. Over time all political parties seem to come off worse on this subject, a sort of - where there's muck there's more muck scenario. Hence the need to keep the party Leader and the money a great distance apart at all times. So I say pity the poor fundraiser who must know the score when they take on the job. As, at the first sign of trouble they are supposed to fall on their sword and protect Number One, a sort of flanking manoeuvre to draw off the press corps; remember Lord Levy? So, damned if you don't get the money in, and damned if you do as well.
