as Willie Cope always said in the summer of 1976, when I were but a lad loading bales all day. Of course he wouldn't be allowed to say it now. But then he was a very old farmworker - never even learnt to drive a tractor. And as we roped down the loads on the wagons it was always "Pull, pull like you would pull a black man off your Granny". Disgraceful, maybe the countryside was a racist place in those days.

THFAWM? - "Too hot for a white man" - I'm ashamed to say.



It would serve you right for your Granny to shout, "oy! What the hell do you think you're doing!"

Nearly right Nancy ... from what I have heard, The Englishman's grandmother was more like to shout,
"Would you mind leaving the servants alone"
