I heard that he actually knows quite a lot about consumer rights, Sale of Goods Act 1979 as amended up to date to 1/10/2003 etc
people are like books, many pages, chapters and most even have an appendix.
That said some are but short stories,
also the older they get most end up with more than a few pages missing and they all, almost always, get filed in the wrong sections by folk who only briefly read the cover or place too much credence on others reviews.
Smee aint a bad fella, he has his own opinions and fair play if he's a tad less reserved than some.
that said I've never met him, live at the opposite end of the country and couldn't really care less what anyone actually thinks.
If there was one very large library filled with all the same titles it would be a very quiet and dull place.
viva la difference.
