I was lucky enough to get a Tweet Reply from the great man night before last. I still think he's wrong about the acampadas being a mix of left and right.

My comment got too big for the box and ended up as this. A pint for the first commenter who asks the obvious question.

I can't remember who was asking this, or even which post it was on, but the Lone Groover strip on non-answers was back around the time of the Sarah Keays scandal; Boy George had also been in the news recently, saying that he thought sex was overrated ("I'd rather have a cup of tea and a chat with a friend"). The Groover, a fading minor rock star, wanders past the press pack trying to get a glimpse of Cecil Parkinson and finds himself getting some attention. He thinks quickly:

"Can I just say that I have never met this woman in my life!"
- Is there anything else you'd like to add?
"Moreover, I would rather have a cup of tea than have sex with Boy George!"
- Are you saying you have had sex with Boy George?
"Let's just say I drink a lot of tea."

Ajay,
its more the list of other achievements. Which actually don't bother me that much as there's no way I could ever have done those things. Plus he was a nice guy, so what are you going to do.

What does bother me is meeting people younger than me who have achieved things that if I'd just bloody applied myself I could have done.

Phil, that would be here; and thanks for the answer.

Cian, What does bother me is meeting people younger than me who have achieved things that if I'd just bloody applied myself I could have done.

Amen to that, brother.
