Sorry for the delay, I was cycling in Estonia … yes, really. Excuses like this, 10c each. Good excuses, 50c, but we’ve sold out. Here at last are the questions for July/August … PLEASE HAVE A GO – by posting a comment, preferably sarcastic – as I know the answers anyway; I’ll put the real answers up in early September.

- If all the numbers were written as words in alphabetical order, EIGHT would be the first entry; what would the last entry be?
- The government of Lesotho is one of two in the world that has an upper chamber whose members are not elected; what is the other such government?
