Because his father beat his mother and he failed as an artist, Hitler tried to take over the world. We amateur psychologists all know that.
And this morning we hear that Richard Granger, the husky killer who is driving the NHS Supercomputer sledge over that precipice, hasn't spoken to his mother for a decade, and failed his computer studies course:
"His mother revealed that the man overseeing largest civilian IT project in the world failed his computer studies course while at Bristol University. He took a year off after the debacle and was only allowed to resit the exam when 62-year-old Mary Granger appealed on his behalf.
The retired teacher, who hasn't spoken to her son for ten years after a family row, said yesterday: 'I can't believe that my son is running the IT modernisation programme for the whole of the NHS. He was disappointed when he failed his computer studies course at Bristol. It was pretty serious, so I had to write to Princess Anne, who at that time was "university visitor" there to appeal for him to be allowed to resit the exam, as initially he was refused permission.'
Mr Granger passed the exam on a resit and eventually graduated with a 2:2 in geology."
Yes, I know it's not fair to dredge up the past like that. But this Big Swinging Dick could end up costing us tens of billions and leave us all at the bottom of an icy ravine.
