Twenty first century enlightenment: something to build on ...
My PA, Barbara Corbett, whose effectiveness is only surpassed by her patience, was relieved I was due to go to Leeds yesterday to speak at a conference on privacy.  Over the years she has got used to my gloomy mood the day after my annual lecture. Having spent several weeks researching and writing and the immediate days beforehand worrying how the speech will go, once it’s over my immediate reaction has tended to be ‘what was the point of that’?
