I've never found him remotely amusing. Used to drive me around the bend when he was on the tv and the parents found him funny.

He must have done something that made you laugh.

What about that time he did an impression of a tax dodger that was so realistic even the Inland Revenue was fooled?

That was the only thing that amused me. Until he was acquited.

Hannah Hauxwell, Iconic Yorkshire Dales farmer and TV personality has died at the age of 91. She was living on a yearly budget of £175 in the 70's, and at one time TV cameras followed her as she left her farm to visit places like the USA. A very down to earth character, she sold her farm in 1988 as it got too much for her, had no running water or electricity.

She was indeed a real character. But there's a line in the article to curdle the blood of any true Yorkshireman or woman:

"The site is part of the old North Riding of Yorkshire - dubbed 'England's last wilderness' - but administrative changes have seen it since become part of County Durham."

RIP the Ridings of Yorkshire!
