One of the things I was talking to the children about on Wednesday was how good stories had conflict - so we had goodies and baddies in our work.
There was nothing else on and we were sitting in front of the tele reading papers so we watched. Seemed like a good idea at the time. We watched the procession of weirdos, grotesques and cartoons (human beings, that's the phrase) being wheeled in, anticipating from their words what they would find:
'I don't like outrageously gay, camp men.' Oops, there's two in there.
'I don't like posh people,' Oh dear; check two of them also.
Hello I'm Bonner

Took me back to my Nottingham days and being Steve Tiller for 7 years.
The annual freak show has begun. Watch and learn. There is conflict, for sure, but who are the goodies?
