"Glasgow-born Duffy teaches creative writing to students at Manchester Metropolitan University."
I know there are some Catholics, some Irish and some who are both in Glasgow and everywhere else in the UK. But I missed the bit where it stated her religion or that she is Irish.
Actually, sounds typical British: born in one place, works in another, with some silly border in between that, thankfully, we can all ignore.
Anyway, are her witterings any sillier than the average stuff in the articles and comments in "The Register?. I suspect they give a lot more entertainment (surprisingly high proportion of the world does not work in IT, thank Heavens, even reads books, magazines, listens to and reads poetry).
