    You’re a nicer bloke than Kingsley James. I don’t think that was the worst thing he said.

    I feel this to be an unfair and pompous thing to say ……… a father to a son who could only get into very grave trouble by following his father’s wishes.
    I suppose the spirit of the command may have been re-assuring that K.A was not afraid of death.
    But, I hope I might avoid such posturing and grandiosity in my final days – hopefully with my daughter and wife at my side at least some of the time.
