IT ISN’T just weeks, it seems to be months for John as the drink continues to take its toll. John’s mood has lightened a bit and once again he does seem intent on trying to kick the drink in the new year. Same old, same old, we hear you say but we will see.
Some people have asked us why we film John. Are we making a cult figure out of a man who is clearly a complete nuisance (to put it mildly) to the authorities? Fair point.
John is an interesting character and, like it or not, the camera loves him. We are only too well aware that there is a darker side to him but our site should reflect life in Thurrock as it happens in 2009.
