SHE caught the shawl as she spoke and looked about for the owner: in another moment the White Queen came running wildly through the wood, with both arms stretched out wide, as if she were flying, and Alice very civilly went to meet her with the shawl. The White Queen only looked at her in a helpless frightened sort of way, and kept repeating something in a whisper to herself that sounded like 'Bread-and-butter, bread-and-butter', and Alice felt that if there was to be any conversation at all, she must manage it herself. So she began rather timidly: 'Am I addressing the White Queen? Alice thought it would never do to have an argument at the very beginning of their conversation, so she smiled and said 'if your Majesty will only tell me the right way to begin, I'll do it as well as I can. It would have been all the better, as it seemed to Alice, if she had got some one else to dress her, she was so dreadfully untidy.
My mentor for today advises steadfastly that when one feels blue there is one surefire way to beat it: and that is to believe six impossible things before breakfast. I choose an unlikely text. It concerns a little girl called Alice, and her dreamlike adventures: short episodes which fade nightmarishly from one scene to another. Nothing seems to make sense in the works of Lewis Carroll. He brought us a strange kind of nonsense. While nothing overtly makes sense in these strange writings, and the humour is sometimes stylised to the point of sinister, that proverb about babies and bathwater comes to mind. He was a fabulous mathematician and logician, and one of the first accomplished early photographers.

The Prime Minister now expects her colleagues and, more importantly, the country to believe at least six things that are, if not impossible, then extremely improbable. The first is that she will win the Commons vote on the Withdrawal Agreement: almost nobody believes that, including her. The second is that she will lose the vote, but not by enough to destroy what is left of her authority: the likelihood is that she will lose by at least votes, which would have been enough to force any of her predecessors to resign immediately.
