Looks like his obsession is switching!

It looks like it'll be a brilliant programme, Jarvo, thanks for the reminder.

'How did a small group of working class poets take poetry from the dusty shelf and onto the street, fending off criticism from some quarters of the poetry establishment, to become a mainstay on British school syllabuses?

Through the eyes of the two surviving poets, Roger McGough and Brian Patten, and their many followers from Craig Charles and John Cooper Clarke to Willy Russell and Benjamin Zephaniah, this film explores the book’s lasting influence.' (BBC)

Always seem to miss the comments before they get removed, surely there should be some cryptic clues to give us a flavour of what was said then we would know why!

The exception being the time lg got a post removed and when I asked why, he repeated it word for word and got it removed again.

I did a little poem, after watching Adrian Henri.

It seems some bugger got offended.

God knows why?
