Was never lucky enough to meet him, despiteWillie being very unwell, my Dad's half cousin who is a Comedian has been hosting a "weekly chat from his home" on Facebook - Willie was posting messages to Pat concerned about Pat and his family, despite being very ill himself -
Luckily Pat's good friend, Mr Christopher Sutton has been doing Radio 5's "606" with Ally B B, so he didn't join in!!
I must admit that I haven't seen this mornings Marr show..
I started to watch yesterday afternoons Government update - he was unprepared to answer a question, save to say the diatribe that was the government policy, which is fair enough, if then you are prepared to engage to ascertain how the question might fit in / adapt your response.
But no, he either moved on the the next person, or ended the response by batting any second questions to the woman with him.
I know people who have had undesirables in their family tree, and it is unfair to blame then (story for another day), but whilst Shapps mentions regularly about his "wonderful cousin Mick Jones from The Clash", Jones has never mentioned him in Public.
