The furore over "C" being outed on Facebook by his wife (a charming woman but perhaps a little to explicit regarding MI6) has made me conscious that I should remain less visible. Entries in this journal will be far less frequent in future.

I have just returned from a tour of some of colonial interests. The mighty British Lions were in South Africa for some sport so I decided to take in a game and provide them with a few stirring words to get them ready for battle.

There were a number of hangers-on on the trip, but after trip to a drinking establish I managed to shake them off (after several hours). This enabled me to get to the real purpose of the trip. This was an opportunity to check on my interests in a couple of gold mines near Johannesburg and a diamond mine that by good friend De Beers runs on my behalf (it keeps the Memsahib happy).
