  3. That article is largely bunkum & balderdash. Firstly it names Beckham as a gentleman. Nice enough fellow he may be but he is the epitome of the player. Secondly members of Leander (& I) will react in consternation to their pronouncements on pink socks. Thirdly I'm not on their list.

    Honestly I don't know why I bother with the Telegraph any more. The pictures of fruity girls collecting their A-Level results wearing little strappy tops only come round once a year & Liz Hurley's going off a bit.

  4. The gentleman is not dead, I still take the time to write a little "you've been micked" note to any young ladies I happen to spend the night with. And leave a little Irish Guards sticker in her husbands sock drawer. Tis only proper.

    I think they have confused Gentlemen with toffs. I've met plenty of toffs who are not gentlemen.

  8. "But today’s gentleman attends Glastonbury, has a Land Rover Discovery, drinks Pinot Noir from New Zealand, embarks on shooting at Alnwick, Northumberland and goes skiing in the French resort of Val d’Isère."


    NOTE TO SELF
    Time to sell disco' to a par venue.

  11. "But today&#8217;s gentleman attends Glastonbury, has a Land Rover Discovery, drinks Pinot Noir from New Zealand, embarks on shooting at Alnwick, Northumberland and goes skiing in the French resort of Val d&#8217;Isère. "

    I think they are confusing "Ponce" with "Gentleman"
     
  12. As an aside, why is Glastonbury not on this year?
     

  13. Botter or rotter or both....
