In 2003, when this magazine launched, Royal Mail charged me £53 per annum for a PO Box address.  Today they want to charge me £318 for the same, unchanged, service. I find that unacceptable.

2017 is about to pass into history. I can’t help wondering if future historians, assessing the present era, will recall Charles Dickens’ words, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...”? My optimistic side sees all the myriads of wonderful prospects before us today, while the pessimistic side of me worries about all the uncertainties. I pray fervently for wisdom, common sense, humaneness.  My immediate wish, however, is that we all enjoy a safe and happy Christmas and Hogmanay.
