    cardoon.
    The last time I looked it was definitely Mr.
    Your very amusing reply for some reason brought to mind something I learned in Junior school poetry:
    "Beside yon straggling fence that skirts the way, with blossomed furze unprofitably gay, there in his noisy mansion skilled to rule, the village master taught his little school"
    It went on and on as I recall, a bit like BB and IFL.
    Regards
     
  2. Thanks, Mr Lexus300! Yes, Mr Goldsmith's poem does go on a bit but it has the virtues of drawing on a most appropriate metaphor in this context - his famous "shapeless ruin".

    cardoon,
    Indeed.
    If you read through there are many likenesses to the context referred.

     
  4. I take it back, Mr lexus300. Mr BB must have been on the sherry after all.
     
  5. I wonder if he doesn't prefer the occasional smoke.
