Ian Noble Tribute
  • John Bateson
  • I will miss:

    His words that I didn't understand 
    His scalpel sharp verbal abuse
    His encyclopaedic knowledge of books
    His giggling
    His huge generosity
    His Ray-Ban glasses
    The fish and chips and beer
    His loathing of pretension
    His support of someone so old

    He was, without doubt, the biggest man that ever kissed me.
