On the occasion of this year’s Heptonstall Pace Egg Play, this reporter was talking to Saint George. He said this:
“I’m not a politician here, and this is going to run. You know Good Friday? You know the Good Friday up in Heptonstall? It’s great, it’s going to be great, it’ll be a great day.
But you know, there are people, yes there are, there people who arrive. People come to Heptonstall on Good Friday, a lot of people come, talking people, people who talk. They get wrong. And that’s not great, no it’s not. And you know why it’s not great?
Well I’m going to tell you. It’s not great because the good people who are there, they are there, yes they are. What we’re going to do is, we’re going to build a wall, yes we are, a wall to keep out the wrong people, they are wrong. Yes and we are going to make Halifax pay for it, they take our taxes so they’re going to pay for the wall...”
It was at this point two men in white coats arrived, apologised profusely, and escorted Saint George away in a medium sized van...
