And first: thank you. A few weeks ago, crushed near flat under the weight of a post-Brexit print bill we launched a special appeal. You, our dear readers, to bought so many books it almost made up for the current shortfall. Financially and pschologically, it made all the difference in the world. Once again, you have saved our bacon and we live to fight another day/month/year/eternity. I’m more grateful than I know how to say for the generosity people showed us.
