Nick Peet, remember him? Yep, he's the Oldham Echo's towering intellectual paragon who opined that it's OK to act like an imbecile at concerts (http://condensedthoughts.blogspot.com/2009/11/oldham-echos-mood-music.html ). Well, it's nice to see that Nick has been let loose with pen & paper again. The result? Well, as it was once said of dodgy tailors, never mind the quality, feel the width (http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/views/liverpool-columnists/nick-peet/2009/12/02/he-ain-t-heavy-he-s-my-brother-in-law-100252-25300010/ ).
Nick happily describes himself as "a fight fan" when recounting his visit to a martial arts show at the Olympia on West Derby Road, which would certainly go some way to explaining his Morrissey piece.
Nice, also, to see the Oldham Echo respect the basic rules of grammar (Nick refers to "brother-in-laws" -sic).
