About the Book

This book represents 50 years of collecting anecdotes, starting at Oxford University at the end of its golden age of developing the personality as well as the brain. So different from nowadays where Britain’s left wing conservative government requires the world’s best known University to waste its money and time explaining to stupid schoolchildren who won’t apply because they think they will be murdered because the “Inspector Morse” murder mysteries are set In Oxford, that they are fiction- pupils this stupid don’t deserve any university education. It goes forward to 2013, with a big airport denying there is an airline called British Airways, and the potential sighting of the ghost of a cowled monk in an ancient churchyard. Geographically it includes the little visited countries of Kazakhstan (a real anecdote, not the silliness of Borat) and the tiny coral Cook Islands in the middle of the Pacific.
