    I have just finished Barry Whyte’s book on Steorn. Wow!

    I thought I knew the story, but there was a lot more to the drama than met my eye, at least. The Irish business environment at that time was as weird as Steorn was itself. The long denouement after the bannination is also quite the tale.

    Well written, well researched, and highly recommended for those moletrappers who were with us at the time. That must be nearly everybody who is left, though maybe not AP.

    The remaining question that probably nobody will ever resolve is …Why? As a business it was ridiculous, as a scam not much better, (it appears from this book). Viewed as some sort of mistake, it was monumental. But as a performance - it was great! (Very unlike the E-Cat.)

    Maybe that’s the secret. I suspect that is the secret of much that is Irish. No offence, Duracell.

    Liars often get lost in their thicket of multilayered lies.
    -Multiverses of alternative facts.

    Is an entertainment a lie?

    It was a fantasy.

    That is one way of expressing my view as well.

    I can only hope the sudden sales spike leads to indulgent over ordering and I can then pick one up from the bargain bin in a few months.

    They decided I would play you and Trim would play alsetalokin. You get to direct because of your experience in corralling maverick moletrappers.

    Although on second thoughts Kylie Minogue’ “I’m Spinning Around” would fit the Bill very nicely.
