  1. “The pipe draws wisdom from the lips of the philosopher, and shuts up the mouth of the foolish; it generates a style of conversation, contemplative, thoughtful, benevolent, and unaffected…”

    – William Makepeace Thackeray, from The Social Pipe

    Not sure if Tom’s video confirms or contradicts this.

    Confirms. I’ve never contradicted anyone. Not because of my inherent nature but because you can’t contradict in Kent. Just like you can’t lie in Yorkshire or feel in Buckinghamshire. Here is a quote to add to Richard’s quote:

    ‘I saw a fellow the other day smoking a foul American cigarette, so I tied gardening forks onto my legs and punctured his tyres.’

    – Lord Cuthbert Clam

    Here is another quote about Swanley leisure centre:

    ‘It looks great in Summer’

    – unknown Swanley district councillor
