Dr Illya Ness says … Many senior doctors in surgeries are left with just one day a week to see patients as UK govt reforms of health service tie them up in reorganisation. Turning doctors into administrators is mad. As I’ve said before: modern efficiency means twice as many experts doing half the work.

ESSAY: JOUSTING – Jousting was part of Medieval ideology, linking warriordom and chivalry to a king who ruled by Divine Right. God and thinking were one.

THE QUEST: The Knight quested long
for the Grail, determined to reach

and the encrusted jewels guaranteed
the only purity he desired.
Endurance of old
When different thought led to stake
For the love of God
