  1. Is there any chance you can fix your RSS feeds? They only have the headlines, not the actual body of the post, thereby defeating the point of having an RSS subscription. ]

    (great blog by the way)

  2. Andrew,

    Thanks – not really my kind of post by the sound of it – sorry. Happy for you to link if you want.

    Best wishes.

    Richard

  3. Richard, I like the blog and I get alerts by email, but recently those alerts have been just links to articles elsewhere. I can’t read them even if the link works (which it often doesn’t) so I may have to unsubscribe. I will keep following on twitter so hopefully if you post on the blog I’ll see it.

  4. Richard, Your post “Post Office, where were the lawyers” was excellent. Does this scandal not call for a crime of ‘Corporate Perjury’ much like the sinking of the Herald of Free Enterprise led to the creation of Corporate Manslaughter
