No, I failed to read that, sadly. I shall have to get that as well now. I'll read the article over my coffee though.

I reckon he'd love it. Scouse and I visited the John Moore campus quite often, the students are so diverse, so switched on and so much fun. Still plenty of shenanigans though, which is important I think

His girlfriend's from Birkenhead I think you've said? Dead handy to Liverpool, he could take the Ferry 'cross the Mersey every day.

Good to hear. Girlfriend's doing law there and doing well after a false start at Portsmouth. The LL, a Chicago boy, could do with a bit of diversity. The students at Portsmouth are overall fine, but he finds the relentless resentful whiteness of the town, with the constant town vs gown sentiment, wearing.

I already played him the song She's living in Wallasey, so he would too.

Even better that his girlfriend already studies there, sounds like a really good move for him.

Wallasey! Right next to New Brighton where we used to live. 15 minute train to Liverpool Central then a 10 minute walk to campus, perfect.

Just read the article. Seems I really need to read the Cohn book. He appears to have been worryingly spot on.

Sounds good. A proper city.

OH has just made a new online boomerang friend there, too. He throws somewhere called The Dips.

Indeed a proper city Gawd I miss it. Pity we weren't still living there, Little Lion could have had a couple of oldies to look out for him and cook him the occasional Sunday dinner.

I didn't know that boomerang throwing was an organised sport, and me being an Aussie - how embarrassment I know the Dips well, our goldie Murphy absolutely loved his walks there. We'd go early in the mornings, in winter the wind blowing in from the Irish sea was, er, refreshing!

While we are on conspiracies, what about that failed conspiracy to lock up Alex Salmond ? https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/p...laims-22759039

My late friend Wilson was from Wallasey, and the lovely Cathy is from Birkenhead - first class people. Tommy Boi from Prenton not so much, but we have all kinds, and he did bring my fishing tackle over.....
