Subject: RE: BS: Archer jailed for perjury
A beautiful little item in the Guardian of July 20th says it all about Archer. Apparently while at Oxford in 1963, he somehow managed to get the Beatles to play at Brasenose College. Sheridan Morley who was a contemporary of Archer there, was at the concert. During the interval, he happened to meet Ringo Starr in the toilet. Starr asked him if he knew this chap Archer and then stated "He strikes me as a nice enough fella, but he is the kind of bloke who would bottle your piss and sell it." Wise words, Ringo. Shame that other people hadn't the same insight, or perhaps they did and were blinded by the Krug and Shepherds Pie.
