He might well be bi-, trans- or a-?

On a similar theme Boris is warning people not to visit their boy or girlfriend. One wonders how many he has?

But "At first you were afraid" is from 70s disco. So how have you forgotten it?

Antonio a warm welcome to the forum. But I should point out, Tony Blair isn't a sitcom. Not all recent Prime Ministers / Presidents are a running joke. :)

Although I did used to enjoy those awkward joint press conferences Tony Blair did with George Bush, where they both wore jumpers and did weird jokes about toothpaste.

You obviously have strange tastes - unless of course What's up Doc is Bugs Bunny cartoons.

And so to The Beiderbecke Tapes. Six down, five to go:

What's Up Doc
A Fire has Been Arranged
Smart Alec (the 1951 film with Leslie Dwyer & Charles Hawtrey)
Sailor Beware
Carry On Regardless

And since that's only five films to last me a fortnight, I'd have the box sets of the Beiderbecke Trilogy & the Booze Cruise for a little further light entertainment to back those up.

"Tapes" is the second of the trilogy. Terence Rigby (or PC Snow, the dog handler from "Softly Softly" as I remember him) was in the first ("Affair") and the third ("Connection").
