Anyone for tennis?

If the government has any bad news about banking, the NHS, our economic future or the meaning of life, today would be the time to put it out. The whole nation is gripped in Murray mania. Dunkirk Spirit,,,,,, backs to the wall..... not since Boudica etc. etc. Us Brits love nothing more than a noble loser. Well, apart from a noble winner that is. You can bet a pound to a pinch of shit that this most dull and cheerless sportsman will now be voted Sports Personality Of The Year. A contradiction in terms rather akin to "military intelligence" and "corporate social responsibility" you might think.
