Hey, didn\'t Scorsese make a film about you two? If he didn\'t, maybe he should:

They\'d have to call it The Russian Job. I envisage Jack Nicholson playing the Slepster, with Gielgud as Sir Jack Doughty.

A pair of old-time mavericks, cleaning up the linguistic jungle, ridding the world of bad-ass grammar and false friends.

On second thoughts, Scorsese move over, I\'ll direct it myself. The Oscar is virtually in the bag.

Arthur - I think that\'s a different film you\'re talking about, but that one\'s going to be called The Blair-Bush Project - with a sequel to be called Bushwhacked. I hope he\'s been watching the news over the last 24 hours.
