On Wikipedia and elsewhere, the celebral output of Yozzer66 is straddled by two different personas:

  • The Odious Oracle, a self-appointed arbitrator of good taste in music, film, books and the art of football.
  • The Red Ramrod, a liberal Christian, a Marxist humanist and an 'organic intellectual' continually politically engaged but striving to remain reflective at the same time.
