1995 Portobello:
I like neither football nor pubs; yet I found myself watching football in a pub. Of course there was a disagreement, two gentlemen were compelling my friend to join them outside. I tried to explain that he did not want to go outside nor fight with them. They then approached me in a threatening manor, however I don’t think it went as panned. One got a punch in the hoota, the other a kick in the bollocks. I had not intension of having any kind of discussion. Suddenly the two became six, so I backed into a corner to defend myself: quite successfully I may add, as I was not struck at all. I head-butted, bit, gouged and punched until I saw my escape to the street. Once in the street the situation was no longer in my favour, I was surrounded and inevitably got served. I woke up concussed, aching and with a black eye. Fortunately the local junkies and down and outs, whom I always warmly acknowledged with a shiny penny, came to me rescue and sent my attackers on their merry way…

If they can stop a former Chairman of his local Labour Party from registering to vote in the Labour leadership election then they can stop anyone. There is also no right to appeal. The Labour Party's philosophy appears to be "When it looks like you are going to lose an election, change the rules and rig the vote." The Establishment media who have brought you every kind of unfavourable stories about Jeremy Corbyn have yet to expose the extent of Labour shenanigans (Ishmahil Blagrove)
Shorten jacket length 3” – 30” centre back

Extend side vents 3” to compensate (Use fabric from belt for seams if need be)

Move bottom pocket flap up 1”

Move bottom pocket up 1 1/2“ (There is a 1” gap between pocket & flap)

Shorten bottom pockets 1 1/2“
I suggest reducing from the top, as it is a straight edge. The flap will then be slightly wider than pocket, so make sure it is centralised with pocket.


All marked with pins.

I purchased a pair of 1930s style Lotus Sandals from Sweetman & Crocker - East Ham Hight Street (circa 1974), to wear with my 32" wide Oxford Bags. At school the kids laughed at me, but it turned out that I was merely a tad ahead of my time...

Biarritz 2015 - I returned to the very spot where I stood 50 years ago at the age of 5, mesmerised by the size & the velocity of the waves...

San Sebastian

Yes I have taken a weeks break - The first in many years: however I do not like sitting still, I do not like sunbathing, I do not the dirty sea & most of all I hate the sand, it's like magic dust, it gets everywhere...!!!
