On a very serious note - I have 6 bits of jingly tin - 4 of them given to me for polishing chairs with my arse whilst stuck behind a variety of desks in various parts of the world and 2 for just hanging around for a long time and for HM Queen hanging around for a long time. It doesn't mean I don't have experience! Similarly I don't engage in warlike dit-fests (even after a few scoops) cos I ain't done anything remotely warlike!
