  • (JP: 'A big day today, actually, because when I leave home and drive into town, I have to drive past Bury St Edmunds on, as you might imagine, the Bury St Edmunds bypass. People who know that area will know that that is a road which is more in the process of being dug up than it is being clear, if you see what I mean, so the chances of actually finding it un-dug up are pretty remote. And yet today as I drove past, it was clear and there were no roadworks, and no contraflow systems or anything, and it was pretty exciting. I'm not entirely sure that I didn't sing out loud with the sheer pleasure of it, because it's been being dug up for so long, I think that people leave school, get a job and go to work on the dual carriageway there, and are involved in hideous initiation ceremonies in which their workmates urinate in their tea, and they grow old and die still working on the dual carriageway around Bury St Edmunds. But as I say, at the moment it's open. Pretty thrilling.') @
