I work in an office that has nine different nationalities amongst it staff. We have no Chinese or Americans, but nevertheless our combined national medal tally to date is 31 golds 26 silvers and 28 bronzes. That would put us second on the table. Isn't diversity in the workplace great.

Headline: "Dragons' Den star slams Sir Alan". Quotes from said Den star about Sir Alan: "I like Alan Sugar. I think he's fabulous," Theo told the Radio Times. Oooooo Slammin'
Edward Green (Monday Letters). You think?
