I see that the Sydney Hooligan is back to being rude again!
I added my signature as quoted purely because I am frequently referred to as "Sir John" which to the uneducated amongst you probably means that you think that the Queen actually smote my shoulder with a sword in benighting me. For everybody's benefit I just wanted to clarify that "Sir" can also apply to the more humble and rare title of "Baronet"
So Syd just shut up, crawl back into your shell and read
"Baronets are not deemed members of the nobility, but rather, titled gentry. Their social rank is roughly equivalent to the petty nobility in some countries of continental Europe."
so there you have it!!
"Sir" John Fowles Bt
Honorary Curator Bootleg Museum

(where Sir does not signify that I am a fully benighted Knight just a Bt which signifies a humble Baronet -?? read the wiki!)
