    Harry Hogwash reminds me of Marvin the Paranoid Android from the Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy.

    You know, the robot who plugged himself into an ailien spaceship for a chat. He was so negative and deppressing the spaceship committed suicide, taking the life support systems away from the baddies who were blasting the heros.

    Harry-if you have nothing nice to say about anything-why bother?

    Harry perhaps it would be quicker to give us a list of places along the Thames you DO like!

    I think Harry is a modern poet, like Damian Hirst, and his interpretations of art, in the form of dissected ruminants and bits of rubbish strewn across an old piece of Linoleum.
    And on the whole he succeeds:
    I read through his '5hitadvisor' review of Henley, and couldn't argue, but felt he missed out on the vapid women driving Range Rovers very poorly, and the local taste for Pink shorts, and sandals with socks.
    The basic results of a privileged upbringing placing education over social skills rather like the cretinous Boris Johnson in fact.
    While he misses out on the good bits of Henley, mainly Waitrose and the Bankside moorings offering a place to moor while you let the Dogs out to take a dump and drink some Vodka to soften the blow of being a poster on the YBW Thames forum and all it entails.
    The Red Lion may be lower quality than an EA managers CV, but there are some nice establishments, despite the seasonal price hikes to stripe up the Grockles, and despite the arrogant sons of bankers working as Summer waiters the food tends to be pretty good although sadly CAU has gone West (Wild West? LOL) and Cafe rouge, a desperate den of greasy badness remains.
    He also forgot Dusty's grave, a pretty little floral tribute you can't help but stumble across while lurking around the graveyard...
    It's not posh, it's pretentious, and full of sawdust Caesars, arrogance and facile pomp.
    You can't help laughing at them in their striped jackets looking like the cast of Hi de Hi or whatever it was called.

    Hogwash is normally bang on, like Apollo used to be before he got bored and wandered off

    This Hogwash has to be the same person as Fatbeard. Same wind up style, short sentences/layout etc.

    He was "Outed " on the Abingdon thread.

    Perhaps he should post as Harry Hogbeard-or Harry Fatwash!
