A book full of weird little guys and the too-relevant harnessing of small-minded resentfulness in the cause of a harmful power play.
We discuss why Lady Sybil is great, the difference between a reign of terror and keyhole surgery of terror, and how the best employee perks are simply more money and more time off.

Featuring various tangents about ancient Egyptian history, and a flashback to watching 10,000 BC (a deeply incorrect film). Plus timey wimey stuff and mathsy words.
