Fair shake of the old salt shaker. Young Graham James is quite a pleasant fellow (the sight of him dancing in a sweaty string vest at Tanamur notwithstanding). Made his money when beach-front real estate was dirt cheap in the early 60s, trail-blazed the English language school scene in Indonesia, restored the nice old building what is now Cafe Batavia in Taman Fatahillah, and has generously looked after many folk. More of an Arthur Daley than a Suharto.

Sorry, being "a psychopath and criminal" just aren't enough to get slung out, a look around Jakarta confirms that - what else has he done?

Has he cut Maccaf's head off?

Personally I thought his best parties were his New Years Eve ones down at Cerita Beach at his bungalows. Anybody ever see his wife's daughter (James step daughter) oh fuck you would crawl through her shit just to see where it came from she was one of the best looking women I have ever seen Indonesia. Seriously but then I saw her in her prime, she was 19 or 20 and oh fuck Marla (James wife) made a beauty there...........

No he doesn't - I've just spoken with him about singing with me and George Michael on our new single and I raised the subject - he said you were talking out of your noodle hole.

Good find though, the tinned jam that is.

Do they do vegetarian tinned jam?

Could I ask you to grab me a couple of tins? I'll pick them up and pay for them Friday when I visit if that's OK.

Always handy to keep a tin or two in the back of the cupboard, one never knows when one may have to make a vegetarian version of a dish (for myself and others)

Doesn't matter if I turn up or not - you'll be sat hoovering your roast pork and slurping beer before seeing off a regiment of B&H Gold, oblivious to the comings and goings around you.

Ignorant pig.
