Have just checked my Saxon account for the first time in ages! (having been writing elsewhere). So, it's taken me a long time to acknowledge this generous and thoughtful feedback I got from 2 people:
1) the guy who said my 'Love From The Stars' was typically brilliant.
2) I remember reading an article in The Economist a

All I, Saxon, can say to no.2 above is 'here here!' (although I hope the last bit is a little too pessimistic). Also I invite this anon, and anyone else, to read my new story 'The Asian Protege' which deals with further hypocrisies of our modern age. May take a day or 2 to appear, due to tinkering with it's final Censorship Rating so to speak.
