    I can see them tapping away over the artisanal stripped pine rustic dinning table, looking out over the Umbrian countryside, proof reading each others’ copy, throwing out ideas over a cup of hot coffee.

  2. I hope that’s David Walker the Anglican Bishop of Manchester, not David Walker the papist Bishop of Broken Bay.
