    Inadvertent revelation.
    From: George Huxtable
    Date: 2004 Apr 26, 15:29 +0100

    This refers to Ken James' inadvertent, and no doubt embarrassing message,
    sent out in error under the thread  "How does the AstraIIIb split mirror
    work?".
    
    I know that Ken has asked us to ignore it, and apologise in advance for
    knowingly breaching the spirit of this list, which will no doubt bring some
    well-deserved bricks, aimed at my head.
    
    But as an outsider from abroad, I simply can't resist making the following
    observation-
    
    Unintended disclosures are always revealing, and this one opened my eyes to
    the level of the arguments on which choice of the next leader will rest.
    Not on capacity to govern, but on the level of valour, or otherwise,
    displayed in a somewhat-inglorious war waged thirty years ago, the lessons
    of which seem to have been entirely forgotten.
    
    I will say no more on that topic, and don't intend to offend against list
    etiquette again in this way. Anyone wishing to chastise me appropriately,
    without adding further to off-topic list traffic, is invited to address me
    at home.
    
    George.
