I have just realised that it’s 2012.
Clearly I knew that before now but it has struck me that it’s forty years, yes forty years, since we bought our dachshunds from Mrs. Morris, a breeder, in the Borders.

So the diminutive, yet pugnacious former Israeli PM has eventually shuffled off his mortal coil at the age of 96.
