Goodness gracious! I never expected to say this, but I am in your debt, John from Hull. Why did I not think to look in the Quicklinks before?
I must say that Oakley is a fine figure of a man, well groomed, not what I had expected at all, and he plays the violin! Well, perhaps I will get out to Hull one of these days and see Punch the Horse after all.
This only goes to show that one should not jump to hasty conclusions, but reserve judgement and take one's time in deciding the relative merits of this or that.
By the way, I must tell you that Malcom Buggeroll, the "poet of the Highlands", is an absolute beast of a man, and a fraud. Do not believe the false propaganda being spread about the supposed literary "genius" of this licentious, kilted libertine, and do NOT waste your money on his outrageously overpriced doggerel, which masquerades as poetry. Ha! As one who was briefly taken in by his undeserved reputation for brilliance, I intend to warn others in advance if I can.
