Well is seems I have really put my immaculately brogued (Oxford, naturally) foot in it over the last few days. Yesterday was the 9th anniversary of a tragic attack on the credibility of BUBB research. NCVO, and their wily leader Sir Hubert Carrington, have always been blamed for this by most people though there are all sorts of conspiracy theories floating around and some claim Dylan Twirley was behind it. The real nut jobs even argue that I instigated the attacks myself as an excuse to start a war with NCVO.
Now, to add insult to injury, plans have been announced to build a brolly sector research centre on the site of the original attack - one that only NCVO researchers led by Earl Scalding will be allowed to use.
Understandably, I am seething about this but all hell broke loose when I announced plans to burn a copy of NCVO's statistics pornography guide, the Gampal Society Almanac, as a protest. Apparently this is just further stoking the tension between BUBB and NCVO so I have relented but at least I have got a load of free publicity out of it so all is good in the end. But I am still not happy about it.
