I remember it, because it became a thing that Mrs. Mystic and I would often repeat —
I was working up at the villa (1991ish) and Gary the scouse butler said to me – “Nick, Nick … This is Imran Khan … you know, the cricketer”.
The `cricketer` and I looked at each other and smiled … both kinda acknowledging that Gary wasn’t very subtle.
Because of the odd way it was brought up, his `being a cricketer` became a thing in my head.
It only took me about two seconds to work out that it was Imran Khan, but it certainly was not Imran Khan `the cricketer`.
The villa was a place of `power and influence` … and it turns out I was right … It was not Imran Khan `the cricketer` that was at the villa in 1991.
