"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Keith Waterhouse RIP

I don't know what to do with myself; I almost wish I hadn't gone out. Keith Waterhouse, one of my 'must-see' playwrights, has died.

It's long been a family tradition that if Arsenal (or Leeds Utd - but don't tell the boys) are struggling, I take myself off to the kitchen to make cups of tea and you can always be sure that they'll score when I leave the room so all I'm left with is the highlights.

Keith Waterhouse, RIP and thanks for all the highlights.


  1. It would be good to see it televised JPT - Waterhouse was a good playwright & always worth seeing/reading - whatever his politics. An added bonus is that he's Yorkshire-born.
