Choc shock

THE NAUGHTY but nice headmaster of Downside School has teasingly invited the faithful to break their Lent fast with a bar of rich, dark chocolate. In a paeon to the sweet stuff, Dom Antony Sutch informs us that "there are several good reasons for not denying ourselves chocolate". Chief among these is that "lack of chocolate and its sustenance during Lent may result in indulgence after forty days". Fasting could, he suggests, be bad for you.

Before you rush off to Safeways, take note. The kindly monk is writing on behalf of Prestat, purveyors of fine chocolates to Her Majesty. I wonder if Dom Antony is being rewarded in pounds — or ounces?
