I would have gone, but I had to work. However, I encountered an "interesting" person on the train who was trying to convert a carriageload of drunken Geordie women to the ideals of socialism. His chosen tactics included singing them the Internationale (which made them piss themselves laughing at the word "comrades") and explaining to them a view of history which included "we don't want to unite with, like, fascists and Tories, but we do want to unite with the animals and birds". Who was this man? He had a full-on beard, if that's any help...;)

I do know the chap you mention actually. He has a very serious mental health problem. I won't name him here as he will google his way here, actually he was a succesful computing science academic before his illness.

It explains a little. That sounds kind of sad, but both he and the Geordie girls were enjoying the chat.
