Good News at Last

The University, in its infinite wisdom, has decided that footnotes do not count towards the word limit. (Didn't tell anyone of course... that would be silly.)

At a stroke, this reduces the thesis' length by 19,000 words. It will still require trimming but not so much as anticipated.

Isn't it great?! This shifts everything back onto the original plan. It will save an enormous amount of painful editing.
