    That was dead interesting.

  2. Ronson rocks. He used to play keyborad for Frank Sidebottom, you know.

  3. Ronson is a superb writer. Got into him back when he did the weekly column for Time Out.

    I’ve been convinced for a while now that the Banker doesn’t exist. Noel just has a phone as a prop so that the contestants don’t know it’s him who’s playing them.

    Only thing is that the contestants sometimes talk to the banker.

  5. Do they? Oh. I’ve never seen that. Bang goes that theory. And it was a bloody good theory, too. Bloody facts.
