He must have been on his way to see you as he passed me by Peter Cook's chemist just prior to this. He completely ignored the red light there, and as the cars from the Lichfield Road came round the bend towards Laura Ashley, he gave his legendary middle finger, which was more of an upright salute. He even took the time to look up at his extended arm to make sure he had used the correct finger, and then continued to shout some inaudible obscenities at the poor drivers who had the nerve to drive through a green light. Once I'd I lost sight of him, I heard the reassuring sound of a number of paps of a car horn. Bless him.
