John Bell

When John Bell first spoke at Greenbelt, the internet was presumed to be an implement used by a coiffeuse for ladies in adjacent chairs, and the ozone layer was what you found half way down a knickerbocker glory.

Since then he has dyed his hair grey and given short lessons on proper English pronunciation on Radio 4. He has never tweeted, texted or facebooked a friend or foe, and any criminal activity has been limited to housebreaking.
