According to the local paper Phil Mitchell lives in the same small town as me. Or the actor, if you make that distinction. I've never bumped into him. I heard a rumour he drinks down the Royal Legion. Seems an odd choice if true. I like to think maybe he is waiting for Grant there, back from the SAS.

Thanks for mentioning Heartfield, I did an FPP about his work a few years back.

I think it is his grandson who runs the excellent tribute website.
