Plymouth’s Administration: More Questions Than Answers

It is never helpful if, while writing about a situation, one of its main protagonists pipes up just before the proof-reading stage to issue a statement claiming the equivalent of “the earth is flat, the moon is made of cheese, and I’m taking my ball home if anyone argues.” So it was that Mark Murphy’s…
