Nige Asserts His Nigeness

Since controversy seems to be raging again about my identity - and no, for the last time, I am not Bryan - I can report that also I am definitely not (despite the similarity of names) TV's Mr Charm, Nigel Havers. I know this because I just saw him on the street (looking a little peaky, I thought). Unless, of course, it was a man carrying a mirror... No, it wasn't, and I'm not him, nor anyone else but this Nige.

  1. go easy nige, you'll do yourself a mischief. three posts in one day!

    I did think you were an alter ego, but now I'm certain you were an alter boy.

    Nigel Havers is actually a dirty b__ no, I can't get away with it on blogger.

  2. I should just like to point out I'm not related to the other Mr Havers. You'd know by looking at us. He's emaciated, I'm not!

  3. Okay, then tell us your full name. And your occupation. Unless you're a gangster, I don't see why you can't come clean.

    Are you the Nigel Haddon-Patten who runs Truffle UK, Ltd., as quoted in the post about the boy who finds 'black diamonds' with his toes?

  4. This getting harder to crack than a Zen Koan. I think I give up. It's like trying to follow the moustachioed duo 118 and 118. Which one is the Nige? The answer appears to be that they are both Nige.

  5. That's another Nigel I wish I was, Susan - fancy running Truffle UK... But I am content to be co-blogger Nige on Britain's No.1 blog for now.

  6. And now Nigel Havers is on Richard and Judy. What is going on?

  7. Just returned from a day trying to look at a stately pile, but the doorman said Richard would'nt be back from Channel 4 'til 8.00.
    Seriously though, I was greatly encouraged this morning when I spotted Bryan had attempted to move the content back to its pre-eminent position among British, nay, worldwide, blogs. I sensed the captain of a great vessel pulling hard on the tiller as he attempted to turn the ship into the sun, away from the treacherous shore and the sullen, vicious, and, quite frankly, silly, population of the coastal town of Madeleyville. But, what do I find on return from my fruitless trip, Craig French asking Nige if he's Richard Madeley, and a separate debate starting about the identity of Nigel Havers, who, apparently, is on Richard and Judy. It's all faintly depressing.
    By the way, is Nigel Havers Richard Madeley's Father? If so I'm Nigel's distant nephew.

  8. Nigel Mansell hasn't had much to do recently...

    On the other hand, Nigel Mansell begins every sentence with the term 'Baysically,...' so I think we can discount this possibility.

  9. Ah, Nigel Mansell. The thrill of watching that Nige right up the rear end of the late, truly great Ayrton Senna at 180mph then the sudden shimmy and ......well, sublime really.

  10. I am very concerned these delusions of multiple personalities are more than sufficient to have Brian/Nige/et al classified as schizophrenic.

    Is there Internet access in your instutition?

  11. The dilemma of identity has reached epic proportions. Why only last evening, Richard was accusing me of impersonating him. The very thought!

  13. Oh Grabber - if ony I were the Curse of St Custards - but alas...
    On the other hand, on the Blogroll Bryan does mention 'odd spelling'...
    How's Peason by the way?
