A new dawn approaches - "the real out-with-the-old-and-in-with-the-new," deems Emmaline; "the shedding of crinkly baggage." What with a tired and tested Conservative party spiralling downward, and the emergence of a New Labour drawing near, the writing is on the wall; things, as they'd say in time, could only get better. And how better might this majestic isle express hers ...more
