Hi James, I have a complaint.
This lunchtime I went with my wife to The Charles Dickens
for a few pints and a Sunday Roast. I started off with a pint of Jolly Roger and followed it up with a pint of Hampshire Tiger. Sunday lunch of Roast Pork with apple sauce was served and very nice it was too.
I had already studied the beer menu and decided I would follow this up with a pint of Stormtrooper at 5% abv.
In the meantime my wife had managed to pick up one of your pesky In SE1 newsletters, and was reading through it.
Look they have got some slides at the Tate, she exclaimed. Yes I know, said I, I had read about it on the SE1 website and saw it on BBC London.
I would like to go and see them, she replied. Yes, we will have to go and see them one day, I answered back.
I want to go and see them now, she replied. Yes, one day I answered back.
I want to go and see them NOW. End of conversation. So I had to go and see the slides at the Tate and missed out on my pint of Stormtrooper.
I really must object to you leaving these copies of In SE1 lying around in pubs. They are dangerous in the wrong hands.
