World is crazier & more of it than we think, incorrigibly plural (not me; Louis MacNeice) Working at Sky News, but blame me not them for my tweeting mistakes.

If I ran Boots I'd keep the price as it is but give the profit to a relevant womens' charity. Maybe that's why I'm not a top CEO.

I find the controversy over Boots & the morning after pill confected. First because other outlets sell it cheaper, so there's no cartel...
