Happy New Year. Sorry about my absence. I’ve been away for a couple of weeks and then, when I returned, there was no internet access and those hardworking people from BT spent ten days mulling over the problem before they tried to put it right. What a wonderful organisation.

He has been criticised for linking the arrival of refugees – described by the increasingly deranged Angela Merkel as an “opportunity” for Germany – to the bomb threats. No, sure. No connection at all. If only Lutz lived here.
