Jonathan Gibson a twenty four year old student from Glasgow has just become the youngest ever Mastermind Champion by scoring a perfect 11 out of 11 in his specialist subject, Flanders and Swan.
It has been suggested that it was quite strange that a 24 year old should enjoy the music of what might be described as slightly politically incorrect music of a previous generation.
No matter I say and as a member of the previous generation who was brought up with songs by this splendid duo on the wireless, such works as, I’m a gnu, The gas man cometh and the hippopotamus song with lines such as, mud mud glorious mud, nothing quite like it for cooling the blood.
I say hurrah to young master Gibson and hurrah to the wonderful Flanders and Swan and leave you with a link (click on image) to perhaps one of their lesser known songs but as today the EU have ratified the Brexit agreement by a massive majority suggesting they are more keen than originally admitted to sell us vast quantities of BMW’s, Mercedes and other items it seemed appropriate.
A SONG OF PATRIOTIC PREJUDICE BY FLANDERS AND SWAN.
