It was nice to see that Mr Monti's staff had their priorities right as a cheer for Italy's goal in the Euro Championships yesterday interrupted the Premier's news conference with French President François Hollande in Rome. The genial Monsieur Hollande, who this week found himself in the middle of a spectacular cat fight, looked as if he longed to be enjoying simple boys' stuff at a football match!

At around the same time, I was on my way to call at a certain office with a friend.  Suddenly there was a screech of brakes as my friend  turned his car round in the middle of a main road, then started for home at a terrific speed, saying, "They won't be open - the match is on."

Interesting adjective, WC. Many of us have others.
