Last night, I was in Newcastle for the first time since the Before Times, to see George Galloway show his unmissable film, Killing Kelly. It is a test of the credibility either of GB News or of TalkTV, which does after all feature Piers Morgan prominently, whether or not it will show this desperately important, but not very long, piece.
Around 10:30, the train from Newcastle to Durham called at Chester-le-Street. As a man in his eighties, completely unknown to me, was getting off, he looked at me and announced, in the unmistakable tones of the old miners, "Brother Lindsay, you might meet a very sticky end, but you'll definitely never starve to death." It must have been the suit.
