Lurve ETON FLOODED - The battle of Waterloo having been won so often on the notorious playing fields, a determined effort will now be made to win the battle of Trafalgar, too. QUICKEST WAY OF COMMITTING SUICIDE - (See road accident statistics) - So you refuse me? Then farewell! I will take a push-bike ride and end it all." COL.
