Martin Newell's Blog
I caught up with Martin Newell (poet, author, musician, all round Renaissance Man and gardener) in Wivenhoe a couple of weekends ago. The conversation was scintillating:
Me: Hiya Martin! Martin: Hiya .. eh .. Thingy! I've got a blog now!
He does indeed have a blog and I have just started to read it. It is very funny. Do yourself a favour, stop worrying about the Euro, or the World Cup Qualifiers, or taking Fido to the vet, or whatever, and read it yourself.
On the French "Non"/Dutch "Nee" to the European Constitution:
When we've smashed Europe to bits and all started to live a bit more patriotically in the American way, I'd like you all to think about this. Especially money. I don't think we should say goodbye to our dear money. I would certainly cry myself to sleep if I thought that our Queeeeen wasn't going to be on the grubby notes I useevery Friday night to pay for lager, turnips and french-ticklers. It would be the end of an era. I'm not sure which one though. I'll have to look it up in the Guinness Book Of Ended Eras.
