Gossiping Neighbour: A good clean honest whack over the 'ead with a brick is one thing. There's something British about that. But knives? Nope. Knives is not right. I must say, that is what I think and that is what I feel. Whatever the provocation, I could never use a knife. Now, mind you, a knife is a difficult thing to handle.
