I met a guy in the pub this evening who was a spy - actually a double agent - in the 60s. He was a diplomat recruited by the Russians at the British Embassy in Moscow, who spied on the communists instead of us: odd choice at the time of Ward, Mandy Rice-Davies, Christine Keeler, Blunt, Burgess...

When fiction spills over into the everyday, it's time to pull back, don't you think? It happened to me last night and the end result could've been traumatic. It wasn't, but it could've been. I've decided to focus my attention in a different direction for awhile. It'll be healthier.  These past...
