What's this post all about then? Some kind of springtime readership cull?

...or are you suggesting that someone has been slipping copies onto policemen's mp3 players?

I have just googled the lyrics and yes, they are too beautiful, moving and have affected me, but I won't kill myself - not yet. Apparently the English lyrics don't do justice to the original Hungarian. If that is the case, I never want to read the original Hungarian.

The use of this clip was part of an elaborate and private joke about Lord Patel's very distant past and because Lord Patel was about to take a lengthy stroll in the sunny countryside - fortunately not alone.

The result was that on the way to our starting point a large and lengthy agricultural trailer for hauling pigs, being towed by tractor proceeding up a narrow lane broke loose, careened down the lane and smashed into Lady Patel's car, writing off the car but not the occupants.

Premonition ?

Not in vain however as a later visit to a birthday party and contact with a Plod to learn that surprise, surprise the Automatic Number Recognition Database from the 40 cameras in North Wales for 10th and 11th March is not accessible to users for tracing.

Speedsters will however not be saved as the system spits out the paperwork automatically.

Strange also that reports on the evening of Tuesday 11th March talk of rescue helicopters scrambled within hours" on the Monday 10th March, "launched after he [Todd] failed to return".

Maybe the Monday helicopters were the helicopters that dropped him off?
