Oh Dear - I hope that doesn't mean that there will be no more 'brief encounters'in your Blogs, Brian - just in case!

That's brilliant, Brian! But don't let it stop you ...

LISAH - Well... it had crossed my mind...

SHEILA - That's OK for you to say, but I'm reminded of the exchange between the Duke of Norfolk and Thomas More in Robert Bolt's A Man for All Seasons.

More has refused to sign the Act of Succession - to Norfolk's great annoyance.

"But damn it, Thomas," he says, "look at those names.... You know those men! Can't you do what I did, and come with us, for fellowship?"

To which More drily replies: "And when we stand before God, and you are sent to Paradise for doing according to your conscience, and I am damned for not doing according to mine, will you come with me, for fellowship?"
