Does Pip ever miss

a chance to be grudging and unpleasant about Josh?

What with Helen’s perpetual put-downs of Tom for years and years, and Lily’s saccharine “concern” for Freddie which generally involves dropping him in it if she can, any male in Ambridge who doesn’t have an older sister is well off.


To be fair to their sisters though, Josh ,Tom and Freddie really are quite unpleasant people.


I disagree about Josh and Freddie: I don’t think there is much wrong with either of them except in their relations with their sisters, who are both enough to drive anyone into bad behaviour. Even Tom was quite a likeable lad before he got so badly bullied and oppressed by Helen and her manipulation of their parents. When he was a GM protestor he was good value.
