Very impressive.

Can't help thinking that Amazon have cocked up when in their comments about your Dad that they've missed completely the fact that he is related directly to the URWFRC's Alex P !

haven't had my free copy yet-publishers dishing out with warm chardonnay on wednesday-but will have to review on amazon...have always been proud of the old boy...but that won't stop me putting the boot in if neceesary.....

doh I totally missed the point of this. I though Alex's dad was flogging secondhand books through Amazon's market place. *searches for peroxide*

Does it have pictures?
12/05/2003 at 15:18
can we colour it in?
12/05/2003 at 15:24

Well I'll buy a copy when it's in paperback please and if you can get your old man to sign it for me then that will be splendid ?

Not that I'm tight fisted or owt it's just that I prefer paperbacks.

judges.... make or break my days. some of them are so lovely and some of them are cruel and unusual ! but me only diddy lawyer so haven't come up against any higher court judges yet... looks like a great book, wonder if i could stick it on parental birthday list. hmmm

buy several copies.don't be know it makes sense.give it to all your friends too.glue them into stacks to use as coffee tables.order many copies for your law firm/chambers to give out to visiting important(that's ALL of them)clients.a first edition will be valuable one day-you may own a table with one leg exactly that much shorter than the others.
come on,i can't buy the entire print run for myself and i've only got three brothers....
ps you know stephen fry will be funnyeven if my dad isn't.
what the blurb won't tell you-and the running connection.this is,i kid you not,the man who asked in open court,during the famous libel action between britain's finest sprinter and an ex bank robber turned journalist the immortal question.....

tell me,what is 'Linford's Lunchbox'?

did your dad ever embarrass you by getting onto the front page of the sun??thanks a lot dad....
12/05/2003 at 21:46
haha no but my mother is an ethnic minority (according to her liberal white middle class numpty friends) magistrate (according to the constitution that chooses to put lay people in such positions). it is quite embarrassing having a muppet for a mother. though marginally less embarrassing than running at full pelt, flobbing and not successfully severing said flob whilst passing a group of staring pedestrians wondering why someone would pant and sweat whilst not in the pursuit of plezzzuuurre. little do they know...
12/05/2003 at 22:00
oh, and in answer to your question, nothing i want to contemplate, ta so much.
12/05/2003 at 23:19 we have one now?

Pity it's not sci-fi, can you get him to write one of those next Alex?
13/05/2003 at 07:09
no. it was late, my vocab let me down badly. i could have said greenhouse, western link or banana but i said consitution because it was nearer the one word that eluded me utterly. i've let myself down badly. i shall resign immediately. can i take my pen pot and fern ?

Your Dad wasn't the chap who described Mrs Archer as " fragrant " was he ?

Please tell me it wasn't !
