I'm sorry, Boncey, but I think you are fibbing. If you can stomach Dale Vince and one of his pies you may have some mental incapacity but not an eating disorder.
If all you say about Mr Vince is true, I'm pretty certain that Ken has posters of him all over his bedroom. He must stand in awe before him.
I really don't know, Boncey. I also don't know whether Owen Oyston was an admirer of Robert Maxwell.

But speaking of the Ashworth scandal, how long do you think that our hero's grieving widow took before she set about extracting the lucre from the company they'd set up? PDQ as I recall but for some reason the records aren't available.

During my visit yesterday to the Companies House site (checking up on Charlton), Boncey, I also had another quick look to see how long it was before the NHS 'accumulations' were extracted from the company and the company liquidated.

Interestingly, to me at least, Companies House records have all been deleted related to the company concerned but faster than you could say 'Paul Robinson' is my recollection of what actually happened.

Chester's been out of action for a few days. In hospital with kidney stones but back home again now. Hope he stays well.

I think she's saying, ''You can't go to Asda looking like that."

Chester's been unusually quiet since he came out of hospital. I hope he's OK.

I know he likes to thumb through his photo album. Here's one he published recently

And another earlier photo of two of the aforementioned.
Can you name them?

That's him. Sounds like a reggae artist but Desmond was eleven time English TT champion and former doubles partner of football agent (boooh), Sky Andrew.

The other one is another former English TT champion, Trevor Taylor in his long-haired younger days and more recently.

The group Half Man Half Biscuit, featured Chester Barnes in the lyrics of this song.

I understand they were Trashmere Rovers supporters (boooh) but John Peel apparently thought they were the bees knees.

I once got into a conversation in a London pub with a bloke who turned out to be cricketer Derek Pringle, and he raved about the band. Got nowt out of him about cricket.

How'd you come to get into conversation in a London pub with Derek Pringle and how'd you get onto HMHB? Interesting guy is Prings. I ought to get round to reading his book, 'Pushing the boundaries'.

Not been out of the house/garden for nearly a fortnight now but found a few face masks whilst de-cluttering. Which of Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, Nigel Farage and Donald Trump would you plump for if you went out for some excercise?

I'd been dragged to London to see a show. I hate that sort of stuff but managed to get at least one pub session in. He'd retired when I met him, and I think he was working for the BBC, but cricket certainly wasn't on the menu that particular evening. Nice bloke though.

I'm not into musicals either, Bonsey, but I did enjoy Les Mis when I saw it in London.

Thought you might be interested in the lyrics of HMHB's, ''This Leaden Pall''. I could almost imagine you writing them:

This Leaden Pall


It’s the year 2163
Chester Barnes is risen from the dead
And he’s coming round to creosote the fence
And I for one feel spartan and monastic



As the drama unfolds on the lawn
There’s a wager between the staff and me
That Barnsey can’t complete the job before
I take my final Stannah up the stairs to the stars



Papal entourage give us a song
Papal entourage give us a song
Papal entourage give us a song
Papal entourage give us a song
Sssh…



Granddaughter doesn’t want to know
Ever since she got into the charts
Ask her what perfume she wears
“Self-Righteous” by Anita Roddick



The doctor overrates me in my room
And with the regularity of doom
A geezer with a double-necked guitar
Comes and tells me Tales From Topographic Oceans



Papal entourage give us a song
Papal entourage give us a song
Papal entourage give us a song
Papal entourage give us a song

Papal entourage give us a song
Papal entourage give us a song
Papal entourage give us a song
Papal entourage give us a song
Sssh…


Still quiet on the Chester front. If anyone's on Twitter, why not send him a tweet and let him know he's not been forgotten on Nuts.

Not many I expect but he was a bit of a rebel when he was a young 'un and I couldn't help noticing that he was formally described as Mr G C Barnes when up before the ETTA for some transgression or other. He probably thought that quite funny.

Although he played doubles internationally with Denis Neale, they were rivals and Denis swore he'd jump fully-clothed off the top diving board at Crystal Palace if he lost to Chester in the final of the England Championships. He lost and he jumped, so the legend goes.

I do hope he's OK.

Day13 and still no news from Chester!

But I came across this Pathe News footage from 1960. I reckon 42 is young Chester.
