Ask me about…

Cycling. I’m a cycling enthusiast, but I know my limitations. I take part in at least one major charity cycling event – circa 300 miles – most years. Apparently, I have calf muscles like Popeye; so says someone who was following me on a cycle ride.

Leave me on a desert island with…

Book: The complete fictional works of George Orwell. I don’t agree with his politics, but he tells a good story.
Dinner guest: Boris Johnson. It seems he can generate a great party in the most unpromising of circumstances.
