Do you want the Road Tax system to change? Do you have thoughts on the potential changes to the Road Tax system? | No thanks
HJ on the radio - Adam Going (Tune-Up Ltd)
Heard you on BBC Southern Counties Radio yesterday afternoon John, with that nice Bill Buckley ! Good to be able to put a voice to the face, which is the reverse of the norm (no, I don't mean your face, I mean .... Oh you know what I mean!).

Regards, Adam
Re: HJ on the radio - Honest John
Those five questions at the end were a bit of a bastard, though. Would have been nice to be prepared for them.

Is not "bastard" a bad word, Martyn?
Re: HJ on the radio - ladas are slow

Re: HJ on the radio - Tomo
Should have been "are", of course!
Re: HJ on the radio - Dan J
Care to share them on a 'News' post if you've got time to type them? Am sure they would have been interesting for all here who didn't hear the interview
Re: HJ on the radio - Tomo
After all, bastards ate the result of that other word!
Re: HJ on the radio - Martyn, Back Room moderator
I'm afraid you've got the better of me now, Al -- ooops -- Tomo. I've completely lost your thread.

But I do deprecate the use of that word here by HJ as much as by anyone else -- though I'm certain he didn't mean it offensively! With that in mind I'm not going to censor it this time.

Martyn,
Think Tomo means that 4 letter word that begins with the letter between e and g.

Used on the N wales Police Chief thread, I'm all for free speech but that post takes the biscuit.
Re: HJ on the radio - Honest John
Okay, I should have listened to the show on another day and anticipated being asked five questions, but I don't have the time.

The questions I was totally upprepared for were: 1: What book are you reading? Answer: I'm, not reading any books. 2: What is the most embarassing record you have ever bought? Answer: (completely stumped because I don't buy records). 3: What is the most revolting meal you have ever eaten? Answer: (completely stumped because, of course, I would prefer to forget). 4: Describe yourself in three words? Answer (after a bit of stumbling) Ex car dealer. 5: What do you drive? Answer: Mondeo. This was greeted with some derision by Bill so I had to explain that I'm not into status, I simply need a quick, decent handling, economical car the cops don't notice.

Obviously if I'd been a professional BBC guest I would have rehearsed a string of witty anectdotes about embarassing records, worst meals and would have described in great detail the last Carl Hiaasen novel I read, which was 'Sick Puppy', but that was a lifeltime ago on the beach at Bali in August. Alternatively, I might have proceeded to sell 'Java Magic', my own novel, but that's another story.
