… I reach for my Gun”

Is a slight misquoting of a line by the Nazi playwright, Hanns Johst

From the BBC News site today:

“Eleven towns and cities have now put their names forward to become UK City of Culture in 2021. Perth, Paisley, Stoke, Sunderland, Coventry and Hereford had already put themselves up for the accolade when they declared their interest last year. Five more are now added: Warrington, Portsmouth, Wells, Swansea and the smallest city in Britain, St Davids”.

Any chance? I’ll bet we’re the only one of those cities with a 30-piece Skiffle Orchestra
