‘Life isn’t fair; it’s just fairer than death and that’s all’
The very great and very wise William Goodman made that up
Ed Miliband has been droning on about fairness for so long
we are just about sick of fair
Anyway, it would have been far fairer if David, as clever as
ever, had got the Labour top job and not Tim, nice but dim, Ed
Last week and this, London hosted its greatest art show…..
The fair in the name is a classic misnomer…..
There is nothing fair about this !
Dealers hike their prices by 25% and hope some ‘stupidly rich’
foreigner will pay the wrong inflated price
Worse still, they have no qualms about bemoaning the clients
that don’t wish to pay the wrong inflated prices in order to
build a decent collection…..
I wonder if Michael Goedhuis (dealer / charlatan) in Asian art
is prepared to pay similar premiums for the goods he needs…..
…..Is it fair, Michael ? ? ? ? ?
No, I didn’t think so ! ! ! ! !
On a lighter moment, the G.-moll was on top form (Again !)
At the entrance she spied the urbane celebrity, Peter York
Remember him ?
He co-wrote ‘The Official Sloane Ranger Handbook’…..
He was always on the telly …..
‘Ah’, she exclaimed loudly, right in front of him, ‘It’s him !’
We all looked quizzically at her…..
‘You know, it’s what-his-face’
We were still none the wiser…..
? ? ? ? ?
Still looking for some light to be shone on the mystery…..
…..She finally blurted out…..
‘You know, Yorky, that Sloaney fella’
We all looked embarrassed and tried to avoid his gaze
The G.-moll didn’t give up easily…..
…..’He’s flattered really’, she added somewhat cautiously
Looking directly at us Yorky added the memorable words from
popular urban culture…..
‘Yes, I’m flattered…..Not’ ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Not a good day for the G.-moll…..
…..but it was about to get worse !
After the event we repaired to a nearby Italian cafe…..
…..where she looked in her bag and realised her
wallet had been stolen while her bag had been in the
…..but her day was about to get even worse than that !
Back to the art fair and the security people were summoned
…..all to no avail…..
…..it would seem that Masterpiece accept no responsibility
for the criminal activities of their employees…..
If you think that makes sense then my name is Donald Duck
If you think that is fair then my name is Daisy Duck
Well, fairly rubbish
