Too easy

Another reason why I read the Torygraph online:
"Prof Piers Steel, a Canadian academic who has spent more than 10 years studying why people put off until tomorrow what they could do today..."
I won't even bother with the obvious joke.

Is his research assistant called Sapphire?

Seriously - who funds this stuff? Why am I not eligible for some kind of grant??

Ten years? I have made it my whole life's work to actively demonstrate it.

Prof Piers Steel, a Canadian academic . . . it's Donnn isn't it?

I love the Torygraph. Sometimes I think they're like the Brady Bunch (the movie), existing in a parallel time frame, entirely oblivious to their own incongruity.

Only their time frame is the 1850s, not the 1970s.

The word verification is "arecresp", which is nice.

Boz. I suspect that you may well be eligible for government funding, but there may be a waiting list.
Richard. MJ thank you.
Ziggi. There is more than one academic in Canada you know, and the inhabitants do have feelings.
Tim. Exactly. One knows where one stands with the Torygraph, and, if you miss the latest issue, read yesterday's again, there will be no difference.
