Quote of the day No 285

Wednesday 22 October 2014

After the tour he went aboard one of the boats, followed by the local Press. The introductions seemed to bewilder them slightly: ‘This is Mr Offley, whose boat we are in; he is chairman of the North West Branch of the I.W.A. This is Mr Grundy, chairman of the Rally Committee and chairman of the Liverpool Section of the North West branch of the I.W.A.’ — ’Then who are you?‘ — ‘I’m David Owen, rally chairman and chairman of the Manchester Section of the North West branch of the I.W.A.’ The whole thing was reminiscent of Gilbert’s legendary gold-hearted King of Barataria, who ‘wished all men as rich as he, and he was rich as rich can be, so to the top of every tree promoted everybody’. In his wide dominions ‘with admirals the oceans teemed’.

Because there was so much work to be done, we had separate offices of Rally Chairman and Rally Committee Chairman. My own duties occurred mostly during the actual rally.
