im sure i remember John Lennon wearing a flat cap? confirmation of working class status surely.
Who dressed two grown women? Probably themselves. It's what most proles or former proles do once they reach a reasonably early age.
John Lennon singing working class hero to reconfirm his proletarian status.
Recorded while living in a massive fuck off house on the Thames at Weybridge and driving around in a white roller
im pretty certain Lennon's early period involved being a child chimney sweep before becoming a miner at the Strawberry Fields colliery. It was only later that stardom was pushed upon him by Aunt Mimi. Its all in the Sun if you do a bit of digging around.
At least he hadn't moved to the easier tax regime of America by then
Lennon selling socialism between shifts at the Strawberry Fields Colliery near Liverpool, prior to being exiled to the USA by the UK state for unBritish activity.
recdclogs getting ready to post
I bet Lennon never wore any clogs at all, especially not red ones
He was keen on the old £.s.d., don't forget.
i wonder if Ann Widdecombe and Norma Tebbit were integral to the 'study'..
A couple of right belters there.
Always find this thread title a bit annoying....
It was a very low base to start with
yeh that's when it was in the gutter and it's got worse since then
Judging by their front pages in recent days, the Mail appears to be claiming leadership of the campaign to lessen the plastic we use in our lives. Do any of you regular readers know if their weekend editions contain magazines in little plastic packets?
My wifes grandparents lived in Byfleet near Weybridge. Her grandfather had a friend who repaired and maintained snooker/billiard tables. In the late sixties, he was approached by Derek taylor, a friend of the beatles and asked if he would re lay the baize on a table owned by Lennon. Lennon wanted the baize to be white instead of green. Apparently, Lennon was told where to go, as the guy wasn't prepared to ruin a perfectly good table despite being offered a small fortune.
Derek Taylor : didn't have a boring life!
Their impeccable sense of proportion on display there I see
iv'e noticed red, blue and green baize's on pool tables. Lennon seemed to have a bit of an obsession with white - white piano, suit, and teeth. But a white baize seems to be extremism of the first order. its tempting to blame Yoko. She was after all responsible for everything else that was either negative or unwelcome, such as the break up of the Beatles, the sinking of the Titanic, and the high rate of unemployment in 1980s Liverpool.
you'd need to order white chalks with it as well, or else forever be brushing the blue streaks out
If all the balls were also white there would be huge potential for cheating and disagreements during a match.
Hurray for Montserrat, a far more emerald isle. I'm sure they pull a decent pint too.
e2a: Cursory internet research says that St Patrick's Day is celebrated there in part to commemorate a slave rising in 1768. Which apparently was chosen as the Irish plantation owners would be busy getting pissed.
I’m sure Private Eye has pointed out such inconsistencies in the past
