    Royal Ascot Jockey scales with the horseshoe the correct way up, points facing down. Luck is light and needs to be trapped. Told to me by my father who was a blacksmith.

    Not Rees-Mogg at all, it’s Lord Lucan. He must have made his escape in Wells’ Time Machine. Shrewd move as he would have known all the winners from all the great races so no problem bank rolling himself in his new life.
