    I never thought of Alan Bennett as an exclusively gay author before, but your headline put me straight. Ooh-er, Missus.

    He is an exclusively funny author and it is a shame to hear about this attack.
    You’d think too that with the NeoCons being in they’d have solved the problems of crime overnight. Tut. Hit the ground sleeping.

    He`s described himself as “bisexual”-he had a long time girlfriend for years before Rupert.

  4. “And it was then that I’d noticed that my wallet was empty. Robbed! Fancy that! I found it most bothersome, and truth be told had not been so shocked since ‘the cracker incident’ of the prior February. I resolved to make a note of mentioning it at the social club, for fear it should happen to someone else. On the other hand, the distress it would cause Mary could well finish her off… It would require more thought.”

    Mocking an elderly, recently robbed man. That’s the sort of person I am apparently.

    Excellent BenB

  6. £1500 in cash? In Camden? Not the wisest of decisions at the best of times.

  7. Never trust any stranger who appears to be showing kindness and consideration these days in Britain.

    Just don’t do it.

    We’ve turned into a vulgar society where strangers simply cannot be trusted because of who they MAY be and what they MAY be up to.

  8. It’s sad to hear about people loosing money. But you shouldn’t carry such large amounts of money with you. This inspired me to do a vlog post plus write a song. Take a look at them. They might be a little strange…
