Subject: RE: Origins: Why Paddy isn't at work today
From the first post to the thread, supposedly quoting Pat:
"The song was based on Gerard Hoffnung's wonderful address to the Oxford Union.", whereas Here, on his website, he distinctly refutes this: "It is generally assumed that I based this song on Gerard Hoffnung's wonderful address to THE OXFORD UNION in 1958. This is not correct."
