Enoch Powell

One of the great things about owning a fairly busy pub is meeting such a wide array of different people as customers – from all different walks of life. However if you are not in the mood it can occasionally be a bit wearing- especially if the local bore is repeating one of his well worn anecdotes for the umpteenth time…
I am reminded of the story about the controversial former Conservative MP Enoch Powell who one day went to the House of Commons Barber for a short back and sides.
“How would you like your hair cut today ?”, said the Hairdresser cheerily.
“In silence”, replied Mr Powell...

By the way I got the photo from a vaguely amusing website which may make readers smile

I can sympathise, I'm not always in the mood for hairdressers' small talk, and I'm sure they are not either!
