        No just hatred of the midget who approved the ‘papers please’ without a whimper. His predecessor would at least referred, because she was educated enough to do so.

        Also, as she was up and down the M1 like a fiddlers elbow and did not have the first part of a tin whistle permanently stuck her ass.

    I spent a couple of days with the Chieftains in Texas and New Mexico as a fly on the wall photographer, Paddy was excellent company, I had never met him before, but he was excellent company and a brilliant story teller – he’s was something of a hypochondriac so I guess he had to go sometime.
