Looking to the future

Whatever my career may turn out to be like after my present gig is over tomorrow, it will probably be less lucrative than that of Paul the Octopus. Having correctly predicted every match outcome in the world cup on which he was asked to express an opinion,the offers are now streaming in for him.

Mind you, the future is not always bright for those who can predict it. Kelvin McKenzie, the then editor of the Sun newspaper (if you’ll allow me to stretch a point), once famously wrote to the paper’s astrologer as follows: ‘As of course you’ll already know, I have decided to sack you…’

My very best wishes to Paul for his future career.
