Gordon Bennett! Yes, we're looking at Gordons. In tribute to Gordon Brown, abandoned by The Guardian. I'll level with you, I voted LibDem, and I'm happy with my decision, but I think more of Gordon than I do Nick Clegg. All Nick can do, basically, is to say "I'm not him or him". So let's start with Gordon Bennett.
There used to be a Mr. Bennett that was the caretake in Tony Hart's Take Hart, but that was Colin Bennett. Gordon Bennett? There wasn't one. Well, there was, there were several, but not as far as the phrase was concerned. That was James Gordon Bennett. What is it with the detachable James? I, Keir Hardie, am named after imposter whose real name was James Keir Hardie. Let's look at some real Gordon Bennetts.
Gordon Bennett is the head of youth development at a football team, Plymouth Argyle. They play football. I've asked them to stop it, but they say they like it. Well, there's no accounting for taste. Unless you write it down in a book.
Gordon Bennett is an Australian aboriginal artist. From what I've seen I can't really get a handle on his stuff, which is good. Not that that's the only criteria for art, or that would make me better than Titian. I don't think I'm better than Titian.
I'm sick of Gordon Bennetts. Even though there are more. Let's go on to other Gordons. And not that pervert Flash Gordon. I'm not going to give him the oxygen of publicity. Just because someone's a criminal doesn't give you the right to flash your bits at them. They're human beings too.
I would have gone onto Special Agent Gordon Cole, magnificently played by David Lynch in Twin Peaks. But I'm afraid that Flash has left a nasty taster in my mouth.
that's all from me for now
see you around

By the way, that's not a hint that I want Star Trek pyjamas. I honestly don't.
