^above her portrait in Oxford an invitation had been added: "Free space - share your thoughts."^

Whoever put that up are the ones who needed the critical thought, adding their thoughts after the invitation seems appropriate. Surprised they could manage any work without emailing home to mummy though.

I just rely on the belief that these little snowflakes are just the vocal minority.

I have been heartened a few times in recent years realising that there is still a 'normal' silent majority out there.

By which time I'll hopefully be dribbling into my porridge staring gormlessly out through the Home window and not caring that I've just wet myself yet again...

Oh God so much to look forward to.

If you'd met any of them you wouldn't say that.

The first time they lost at something their entire world would come crashing down and they would be a dribbling mess.
