1) Us Yanks and others may not know the open secret about Wilfrid's
predilections. Don't mean to be nosy, but as it got brought up, I can't
help feeling curious.
2) GE's short quote had me convulsed. I could hear Old Steptoe say it
even after all these years. Is there more of his precis of Richard III?
3) To get back to accents. GE characterizes Steptoe's as West London
working class. How would it differ from Cockney? Or is it a sub-accent
of that? Where is "West London"? (I gather it's some farther west than
Mayfair.) How many working class accents are there? Do the toffs
(torfs?) really say "orf"?
