Fingers in ears time, la-la-la I can’t hear you and all that


One thing I absolutely and resolutely refuse ever to do is to pay any attention to statistics. Another is to watch the news: way too much negativity, parcelled up in repetitive half hour slots, chiefly designed to panic, worry or depress you in equal measure.
