The Stripping Kinnock

I just had to post this update since I’ve got exciting news. I’m off to Washington next week to attend the World Stripper’s Convention!

The tickets have just arrived and I’ve now booked my flight. By an odd quirk of coincidence, I’ll be there at the same time as my less-tanned namesake but I doubt if we’ll meet unless he decides to come and take in the best conference in town.

However, should any of you be in Washington and want to see me get naked, I’ll be performing on the second day and I’ll be doing my Welsh miner routine. It’s probably my least favourite routine but we’ve all been asked to do a show that represents our countries. It’s really a shame since I don’t think I look that good with my face covered in coal dust and perhaps it isn’t in the best taste to pretend I have miner’s lung as I go wheezing around the stage. But it’s too late to create a new routine, though I would have quite liked to have done one themed around Neil Kinnock. In my mind, he's always been one of the biggest Welsh icons. I’d go up on stage and shouting ‘We're alright! We're alright’ before whipping out my opinion pole to test the audience.

Now I think about it, I wonder if I couldn’t cobble together a few moves. What would it take to transform myself into a stripping Kinnock? I’ll have to give it some thought.

Anyway, I’ll have more news closer to the time and of course I’ll be blogging throughout my trip.

Perhaps we are one and the same? I simply can neither confirm nor deny any such rumours.

Enjoy Washington. I lived there for many years and have been back a number of times. It is a beautiful ctty, with some crap areas. I took my brother for a drive when he came to visit. He was very used to seeing the BBC commentator at the White House and assumed it was all like that. We drove 4 or 5 blocks from wealth to poverty.

I've heard that about Washington before. I think Hunter S. Thompson talks about it in his 'Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail', which I'll have to try to read before I get there. I don't think I'll have chance to see the sights. I'm only there for the conference.

And knowing you as I do, Chippy, I can imagine you seeing very little of Washington at all....so concentrated you will be on your conference, of course...
