After listening to yesterday’s (Friday) awful attempt, I was puzzled by Piggoi’s treatment of Emmur, dismal dismissal, no so much as a “Thank you very much! …and here’s two hundred quid for your trouble!”, and on perusing “Mustardland”, I found a message posted by me old mate susu
This so doesn’t sound like Peggy.
Much as I dislike the woman: (a) she knows what Kate is like and (b) she wouldn’t just dismiss Emma without giving her some notice or a nice little bonus for all the work she’s done in the past.
Sturmers, I too was amazed she’d treat Emma so churlishly. She’s always been nice to Emma and for heaven’s sake, she subsidized her previous cleaner’s, the meerkat’s, rent! (Elona) In short, she just wouldn’t act that way. I’ve disliked her for being cold, critical and unsupportive of Tony, but she’d think it unworthy of her to treat an employee that way.
I too found that complete tosh, especially considering how kindly Peggy treated Elona, who was her cleaner from October 2011 until June 2013 during which time Peggy paid half the rent on her house as well as giving her wages, and gave her a bonus and a leaving present.
Not that Emma, or indeed Elona, was aware of the rent assistance, but even so!
I fancy I remember LaBeetle (…bless her!) mentioning the CardIndex in an ancient interview in which she stated that the SW team had dispensed with the services of the index, but it seems it was never replaced with something better, but I suppose in an age where attention spans are measured by comparism to that of a goldfish…
There is a blog post by Keri Davies somewhere in which he gloats about it all being on computer now – joe is yer man for locating it – but I strongly suspect that it is only as good as the archivist who consults it.
I wasn’t suggesting publishing it anywhere, just to have a copy of the text for our own use so that it can be referenced if needed.
In any case, we all wrote original stuff on the BBC boards from time to time. That has now been archived and can be accessed through (I think) the British Library. I certainly wasn’t asked for my consent for Frillians Wake to be used.
