Robbie Williams is not open on Sundays

We know he was probably attempting a clodden joke, but we still think there's something telling in Robbie Williams asking his "friends" to call him Nash. "As in national treasure."

Is that National Treasure as in the film we thought was a poor man's Da Vinci Code until we actually saw Da Vinci Code and which is now, incredibly, being followed with a sequel being filmed in Greenwich as we speak?

Why is it that you've made so many posts which rip apart gossip-based journalism such as '3AM' and Victoria Newton, yet when it suits you you'll take a story like this from exactly one of those gossip-based sources and use it as an example of fact?

It appears that you were so busy spouting off about hypocrisy and inconsistancy within the '3AM' world that you forgot to keep tabs on yourself....

Ah, anonymous. That's a very good point, albeit one with inconsistency spelt wrong.

Not everything that appears in the tabloid's gossip columns is wrong, or made-up. Everyone should read everything with an open mind and weigh if they choose to believe it or not. For example, clearly, the original 3AM peice I linked to here was reporting this as if Robbie meant seriously that he wants to be known as national treasure; I disgree - as you might have read in the post - with that interpretation, and think it was intended as a joke; however, I think the choice of the joke is, in itself, revealing.

Good answer, Simon. I prefer to rely on the wisdom imparted to me by an old woman on the Utah mesa: "Have the courage of your contradictions."
