on’t ask me why I am confessing now. It’s not that I’ve changed my views after all these years. I am as committed now as I was when I joined forty-odd years ago. Nor am I unaware of the danger of going public – of coming out of the cellar, so to speak. The enemy – the SAMs – are stronger than ever and this confession might well be my oenological obituary. But one can’t go on forever leading this double life – a SAM by day; an IMU by night.
