Oh Petey C, I love you already.
For those like me who can neither afford nor be arsed to leave their house on a Sunday morn to buy a copy of the Times, my good friend Blogtor Who has been kind enough to summarise the interview here. PLENTY of food for thought. Opinions?
"He’s a Commander of the British Empire and has already won three Bafta awards. From 2009 to 2012, he was president of the Royal Geographical Society. And he’s the only man I know to have not just one but two railway engines named after him. For the past 50 years, he’s been the best friend I could ever have hoped to have. Despite the rumors, he really is the world’s nicest man. Except if he’s getting hungry."
STOP TEASING YOUR FAN BENEDICT
"It’s not dead. It’s resting."
That is an ex-parrot.
He has ceased to be.
He has expired and gone to meet his maker
He’s probably pining for the fjords
