Well our two schoolteachers do something that all the "Queen's Horses" cannot. The notion that you cannot provide exquisite chuckle humour mixed with a cacophany of intrigue and low key excitement whilst kicking the "Bix Beiderbecker" out of authority makes a wonderful release from the then and now, of the antics of both politics (the story line for politcal intrigue and corruption which is universal and cyclical) and greed amongst those we are meant to trust but don't and hence the wonderful and farseeing writing of Alan Platter. I only wish that he would update another and continuous series with that of present day corruption in the political arena and all the woes of social and ecological decline. We might get that kick in the pants which all the messages the Greens are encouraging us to change our ways in a manner which society will encompass and take our responsibilities seriously. The B/B trilogy is undisputably one in the most fundamental ways in which life in the UK could become more honest, fun and intriguing if everyone stopped being frighetend of everyone else. Please much more of the same!
