Stuart Hall

The Mail had a quote from Stuart Hall's autobiography. Apparently as a young man he turned down the chance to become a professional footballer because the wages wouldn't have been enough "to keep me in tarts and fags".

Tarts, fags- same thing really- two of life's little pleasures.

Is that his view of women? I suppose it must be, because if he saw women as persons I don't think he could have done the things he did and lived to 83 being all jolly and such.

Did he never feel a twinge of self-disgust? Never feel tempted to put a gun-barrel in his mouth?

His youngest victim was 9.
