The Winds of Change

I came back late last night from an interesting Open Meeting at the Royal Astronomical Society, followed by another exceedingly pleasant Club Dinner at the Travellers’ in Pall Mall; next time we’ll be back at The Athenaeum.

I didn’t get home until 1.30am, and went straight to bed. I woke early to news of momentous events. The discredited authoritarian leader of an exausted regime who had presided over financial collapse and who had been clinging tenaciously to the offices of power, attempting to stave off the widespread clamour for his resignation with the promise of a new administration in several months’ time, had finally resigned. The news filled me with jubilation and a sense of optimism for the future.

I went back to sleep, waking again a couple of hours later with the sad realisation that it had all been a dream.

Keith Mason is still in charge of STFC.
