I would come at this from a slightly different angle. Is Paul Morley our greatest writer who can't pronounce his R's, perhaps....

I'm more of a Lucy Ellman chap myself. D'you know, I wrote her a fan letter once, and she even took the trouble to reply. Pure class, that, don't you agree? I'll always treasure that delicately scrawled note on scented lilac writing paper - I've committed every word to memory and can recite it even now:

"Please stop stalking me, or I will have no alternative but to involve the police and social services. Now piss off and leave me alone. Lucy."

The girl can write, non?

Love on ya,
