I'm really no expert here: Should Alan Coren be mentioned on this page? <KF> 22:25, 15 Apr 2004 (UTC)

If he was born or lived in Cricklewood then he belongs, feel free to add both to his page and to here. --/Mat 00:23, 16 Apr 2004 (UTC)

I don't know. He wrote a number of books with "Cricklewood" in their titles. I've got another one called The Cricklewood Diet. <KF> 13:50, 16 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Cricklewood quote[edit]

The quote beginning "Cricklewood is a land that sates the soul" was cited as "*Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine "Cricklewood", Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine v.64 1848.". It does not appear there. It was previously attributed to a Seamus McTaggart. Does it have any validity at all?NebY (talk) 12:23, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

'"Cricklewood is a land that sates the soul of a true gentleman. It is a land of milk, honey, and ambrosia. The sweet teat of a nubile young lass is never far from the desiring lips in Cricklewood. But if I were to win the mastery of your firearm I would shoot you dead, sir."' I don't believe that this quote is useful (it is gibberish), nor is it at all verifiable as a real historical quote. I'm removing it. Fences and windows (talk) 21:42, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Good. Please can anyone who wants to restore this text first discuss it here? NebY (talk) 08:11, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
