An email from a reader alerted me to the death last week of British journalist and writer Keith Waterhouse.
His final column for the Daily Mail, published four months ago, was It’s English as she is spoke innit?
If these two quotes, attributed to Waterhouse, were applied to New Zealand at whom and which city would they be directed?
(Of Margaret Thatcher) “She addresses people as though they had lost their dog.”
“Brighton is a town that always looks as if it is helping police with their inquiries.”
