This seems to not be the case.
I'll give it some time. If I get any comments along the lines of "No! Please! Keep the blog going!" than I shall, failing that, I may have to don the hat of Political Commentator like so so many before me, to ensure I get any attention for my efforts.
But first, I shall eat the stilton and bacon baguette I have under the grill.
Ps: RIP Clement Freud. We'll miss your dulcet tones on Radio 4.
