Text of the day: “Damned bad luck. There’s no oil anywhere in the Empire. Maybe, God had a good laugh when he dealt the stuff out, gave it to all the hardest-to-reach places invariably run by a bunch of backward savages; putting his favourite pupils through their paces, know what I mean? So — we need to buy it from somewhere. It’s my job to get hold of Persian oil. Hence the bubbly and the faint whiff of panic.” (Samuel in Ella Hickson’s Oil)
