I promised you happier stories, but I’m sorry such stories have to wait. I just heard that Tommy Robinson has quit the EDL – the English Defence League – which I regard as an extremist right wing group. And I’ll tell you why.
Once upon a time in Hull, I was walking down a street – Newland Avenue, as I recall we were on our way to the Post Office, probably to send letters to Japan, my wife is Japanese. A young man walked up to us and asked me ‘Do you like mixed blood?’
Being slow witted, or maybe unprejudiced, it took me awhile to work out what he meant. The next day there was an EDL march in Hull.
