Is Mecannylad just another Townie on a collision course with the countryside? Can he hack it in the bracing air of the fabulous Peak District? Will he survive amongst the farming set and their prize winning friesians? ....... This staunch Geordie carries fond memories from the gritty back streets of 1960`s Tyneside when a Big Mac was nothing more than a raincoat, a joint was only the Sunday roast and going all the way was simply staying on the bus until the terminus.
Money to burn.
Jesus Christ walked on water, healed the sick, raised the dead and turned water into wine. And yet none of that seems as ridiculous as the fact that thousands of British pensioners who winter in hotspots such as Tenerife can still legally qualify to collect their non means-tested £200 winter fuel payment from our dear old Government.
As for Mecannylad ? …. my winter fuel payment goes on dog treats for Mecannycocker !!
