I've sold him records years ago in Glasgow, and saw him recently in Marks and Spencers .


Brian Pettifer surely? I saw him in the Odeon on Renfield Street once.

That New Zealand enjoys a rodeo

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/ ... ew-zealand


Man's capacity to enjoy treating animals like shit is really without borders, isn't it? You see it in Austin - otherwise seemingly pleasant looking families, lining up to show their children how animals can be utterly terrified and manhandled for fun. Whoopee!
Obscene.

When he’s not acting, he sells antiques. I was browsing his stall at an antique fair once when someone came up to him to compliment him on his performance on a TV show that had been broadcast the previous week. Pettifer was totally dismissive and unpleasant to the poor guy.

Not the first unpleasant gash on this site ...
