Confession: I too have played croquet

A croquette fan recentlyNot recently, I hasten to add, although we did have potato croquettes last week. Does that count?

Either way I’m clearly not doing my job properly and must be driven from office immediately.

Photo: A croquet fan looking glum yesterday. Not only has the reputation of the beautiful game taken a “hammering” in recent days but it is also banned on trains in the UK, even first class. Not even a bacon butty and a female companion can cheer this fellow up, such is his love of “shooting hoops”.
