    The point I'm making is that we're comparing one peak with another and in real terms this peak is actually lower.......even though it doesn`t feel like it.

    Very wise.

    If the clothes still contain a lot of water the fibres are effectively flooded and the rate of evaporation will be lower than if the clothes were partially dried. Once the water...

    ??????? In real terms, correcting for inflation, petrol is still cheaper than it was in 2012/13. The tax take is also slightly lower.

    Why use 5 words when you can use 25.......... far too verbose for my taste, an irritating style that doesn’t appeal to me. I skimmed through it and got the overall gist.
