What a Compliment…

I wouldn’t normally just post feedback from my work, but I quite liked this. By quite, I mean “really”.

I will be able to cancel my weekend Guardian subscription if you continue to hand in homework of this superb quality and quantity. A fascinating read packed full of well-researched & balanced analysis of this monopoly. Just brilliant!
