One of these days someone was going to drag Arthur bloody Wellesley kicking and screaming into the twenty-first century. Today was clearly not that day. Why he couldn’t just send a group email like any other director was a mystery to Grant.

“No,” Grant said, glaring at the JCR notice-board. “And look who did.”
