No, employee.

Do you think that 'celebrity' economists like David McWilliams talk sense?

I don't know. Economics was never my strong point.

What do you think of celebrity historians. Dumbing down or opening the subject up to more people?

How old were you when you stopped drinking in a field? (Or if you do your drinking indoors, last time you went on a session?)

The one and only time I went drinking in a field I was 36. I've stuck to listening to celebrity historians since.
Do you like quizzes?

No not very academic or intellectual plus memory is rapidly on the down something or other whatever that phrase is.
AAaaam can't think on the spot, but I would deffo pick some Comedian. From watching Panel Shows, I feel that Comedians are in-herently more intelligent than they may be given credit for.


What was the last thing you had to eat?


Actually I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post in here? Please remove reply if I'm not. Apologies and t.y.v.m.i.a.



(Funny Side-story about David Mc. At a C.I.P.D. Conference in College one year that he was speaking at, he gave out to a Student in the Hall for not turning their Phone off when it rang. One minute later while he was speaking, his own Phone rang! All's he could do was apologize. It was funny at the time.)

Yeah. No problem with that, thankfully.

Have you a fear of dentists?

Yes, when I was a kid our dentist was a whiskey smelling butcher. No other way to describe him.
But my current dentist is a much gentler soul. When hurting me he is so apologetic!

Do you have good teeth?
