Thank you Peter! And also for adding a vital element to the story. The SPBJ sounds like an extraordinary but little known organisation. We at H&W and our readers would love to know more ...

Super little tidbit.  I knew about the Loris and its endangerment, but had not realized that the toxin is in their elbow, and then a quick lick transfers the toxin to the mouth, whereupon a nasty bite can be delivered.  I had not realized that our fluffy Boris is likewise in danger.  I agree with the SPBJ (Society for the Protection of Boris Johnson) that he should be put on life support because otherwise where would journalists find grist for the mill?
