I see red, I see red, I see red: Hunt for the Red October

It is fair to say that I have a complicated relationship with the colour red – not least because, as an extremely colour blind gentleman, I often mix it up with green and brown. This is one of the many reasons I am a terrible at snooker. [1] It also explains, but does not excuse, some of my more questionable fashion decisions.
