And we’ll moonrake here before we start

In Moonraker, written here by Ian Fleming in 1953, “M” said: “I’m always suspicious of sunburned men in England. Either they’ve got no job of work to do or they put it on with a sun lamp.”

He didn’t like men who couldn’t whistle, either.

And of course, as we all know: “Sir Hugo Drax cheats at cards.” Fleming’s big in 2008, it being 100 years since his birth. And Bond is a classic European, after all.
