    Ah, Oliver Callan: the poor man’s Jon Culshaw, if Culshaw were an untalented SF stooge. John Moynes would be much better value!

      Yup, but he’s now on the RTE team, which means they’ll keep making programs for him no matter what until one of you dies.

            Sorry, I know you’re a self confessed West Brit but that’s a bridge too far for me Ted.

            The ‘RA and their fellow travellers are happy enough to dish it out – they can get some back from me, too.

            Heh! Listen, Bertie, I hope we’re square: sometimes my desire to clobber a particular ‘tradition’ causes the red mist to descend something fierce!

    …Callan’s kicks has to be the best thing since Scrap Saturday…and if Moynes had anything to do with the recent Pascal Donohue as Forrest Gump sketch I take back all the awful things I almost said about him…
