The real Borsetshire Echo: 60 years of class struggle in Ambridge
Yes! Its Mrs Titchener
While the pressure on Brian to retire continues, Pat and Tony have already done so. They have handed over the farm to Helen and Tom. There is a problem though because after this week’s visit to the Isle of Wight it is now Mrs Titchener… This leaves the way open for Mr Titchener to move in and sell the farm to Justin Eliot for warehousing and pocket the proceeds. Pat and Tony need to see a lawyer pronto
Meanwhile, Brian has seen a lawyer already. Adam has plans for Home Farm and Debbie backs him. However Brian, who has still not retired, is concerned about the financial impact of all this. He has been to speak with a lawyer to reconfigure the structure of the farm. Since Ruairi is now apparently 12 Brian only needs to hold out for another 5 years and he can appoint a successor and eject Adam. In the meantime, he is proposing a 60-40 share arrangement to Adam, so that the risk is spread. Whether Adam will walk instead remains unclear.
Ambridge Socialist Editor Keith Flett said, it’s a band of warring relations in law.
Brookfield milking crisis
Pip is off to another acting role shortly and Roooth is still mostly Oop North. David needs someone to cover the milking at Brookfield. But who? Eddie, aside from banging his thumb, is otherwise engaged. So is Ed. Pip has drawn up a job description for an agency worker but who in their right mind would work in proximity to David Archer without a bodyguard? Cameron’s flexible labour market has a way to go yet. Perhaps if David was to offer treble time things might look different…
A message from the Writer in Residence at The Bull
Readers may recall that Nicholas Lezard was recently voted Writer in Residence at The Bull. Unfortunately a plan to write an analysis of the importance of the vernacular poetry of Bert Fry has had to be put on hold. Comrade Lezard has explained that ‘the ethics of containing and ignoring Kenton’s embittered lunacy is using up all my moral bandwidth at the moment’. We hope Comrade Lezard will be back on glide path soon
In other news
Jolene and Kenton are looking at plans for a refurbished Bull. It will apparently be Gastro but locals will also be catered for. Sounds like The Ambridge Brewdog will be here before long then.
Charlie has discovered that Berrow Farm is making a loss. Titchener is in the frame. He is the only one who knows how the computer works…
