So impressed were these country folk that the paper headlined his 'Royal' visit......
"Upbeat message from affluent visitor, Sir Merrick Cockell!"
Anyway, the Dame wants to share the story; particularly the comments left by the men and women of Jarrow. Clearly, less than impressed, they had done their research and left a number of very funny rude comments
The Dame liked the bit when the journo wrote, " Sir Merrick is passionate about the arts"-as if he was some latter day Medici.
Anyway, he had a jolly nice day out patronising the locals. He was reported as having gone for a stroll along the Jarrow promenade with many 'locals' turning out to watch him 'strolling.'Someone should have told him that Jarrow folk are not taken in by poseurs like Pooter! They are tough: they are resilient and they don't like to be patronised by twerps.
