    An acquaintance who teaches history in an increasingly Islamicised area of the West Midlands informs me that, to avoid any possible misunderstanding, he decided, this term, for the first time, to spell out to his class that Henry VIII had had his six wives one at a time!

    I don't know why this made me smile, but it set me thinking: If Henry VIII had had a wider understanding of the world, might he not have led his nation along the path to Islam rather than Protestantism? Catherine of Aragon might have become the contented senior member of his harem; and as for Anne Boleyn, poor dear, she would still be alive!

    I love my wife dearly, but...

    I have enough problems with one. I don't know why anyone would want six at the same time.
