I've met Reg and he wasn't a drunken wreck.

He did, however, gibber a reet load of awld leftie shoite, so I'll give you that one.
Actually I thought we avoided politics on the occasions we met. I thought it was more a case of you, Don and chickenshit finding a rather welcoming and friendly character who protected you from your gauche behaviour in Newcastle. Chickenshit's behaviour is of course legendary, the poor thing.
