Grumpy old man and writes about what ever takes his fancy.
Herbaceous combines the worst characteristics of Compo and David Bellamy with a small bit of Alan Titchmarsh thrown in (you can judge which bit). Herbaceous ('Herbs' to his associates) should really be living in a gamekeeper's cottage in the woods but due to fate and some very poor career choices has ended up in a four bed terraced house bang in the middle of suburbia.
His main trait is one of muddle and confused thinking. All his knowledge of country life and nature has been put through the washeteria of life and, like Touchstone in As You Like It, has a wit as dry as a remaindered ship's biscuit after a voyage and is crammed with observations which he vents in mangled forms. This is all compounded with a penchant for cider.
Notwithstanding this, he's a friendly type and will happily smile to all concerned when leaving licensed premises without having had to buy a round.
Being sneaky and spy like
Spy is not one person but a network of people that feed information into the magazine so we know what is going on. Your best friend could be a spy and you would not know it unless he/she starts talking into their shoe phone, now that might be a give away. But these days with an array of mobile phones and other devices available, the SEnine SPY could be next door, across the road or in bed with you.
