Case of mistaken identity

To the couple stood behind me last night in the "Best Turkish Kebab" shop in Stoke Newington Road who tapped me on the shoulder and said "you're that Chris Evans, innit?", a handy recognition guide:

Chris Evans is over 6ft tall, a millionaire, and has had his own TV and radio shows.

I am about five-foot-six-and-a-half (the half inch is very psychologically important), rather rounder and more florid than Mr Evans, unlikely ever to be a millionaire, and have my own website and the occasional letter in the Guardian as my media claims to fame.

However, the similarity has been noted both by "another blog" and many white van drivers over the years, so it's an easy mistake to make.

The extra half inch is very important. No wonder Linda's smiling.

I was going to say.... and Evans is a wanker too, but the too seems a bit unnecessary.

I've little time for Luke's politics but such personal attacks speak volumes. It's not like the hard left is full of lookers, for a start (weasel-faced Corbyn, for one, not to mention hefty Diane).

What I said was a compliment.
