I was once married to a member of the Ryan clan – Annie Ryan. She came from a tough suburb of Sydney, called Blacktown. When Oz-folk in London asked where Annie was from and I said ‘Blacktown‘ they always winced. Then one night at a party in the Brixton Dogstar an Aussie asked the same question, but added, “..and don’t tell me, you’re already divorced?”. “Yes!” I replied without hesitation, and with a big smile.
