Anyone expecting photos of a 1;10 flying replica of something going at warp speed is going to be disappointed. Sorry. This is more to do with the enterprise (or lack of) that pops up on Dragons Den as largely hopeless business men and women pitch ideas to potential investors. It's entertaining but scary to think that the UK economy is reliant on such deadbeats.

I'm waiting for the first wargames related business to crop up because I'll be texting the programme with the following questions as soon as the entreprenuer steps out of the lift:

1. Will your website have a redundant telephone contact number?
2.Will you accept orders and then fail to follow up with the client with some form of feedback?
3. Naturally you will be ignoring emails?
4. Your failure to think ahead will be deemed sufficient acceptable reason for a lack of response?

Now I could drone on like a caller to Jeremy Vine but will keep it short. I'm prepared to accept that with a few exceptions we rely on the enthusiasm of what is a cottage industry. It's a risky business but regrettably the moment money changes hands the old 'cat developed leukaemia' gambit doesnt cut it anymore. If I'm kept up to date I'll tolerate delays of a reasonable magnitude but your domestic crisis is really not my problem - would you accept an order that I said I could not fund because I'm going on holiday and needed the cash for something else? Doubt it.

Sounding a bit TMP so I'll stop.
