marvel at how the British die!"

 

Sir Henry Satchville-West (courageous soldier and career diplomat): "Just wish Matilda had

kept her big fat gob shut at dinner last night. Soon as she called the doctor a 'jumped-up little yellow twerp'

I knew it was all up. Think I'll shoot her in the arse before they eat her..... Always wanted to do that..."
