Whenever the subject of Britain's last hangman comes up http://www.britfilms.com/britishfilms/catalogue/more/?mainID=D9A7E5A21650d19163tWj1319118&pageNo=2& I'm always drawn back to something my Dad always used to tell me.. Albert Pierpoint, not having enough to do as he only hung over 600 people...!! ,used to run a pub in Hollinwood , Oldham , called "Help the poor struggler" ...you couldn't make this up...my father was a regular..and I used to sit on Albert's lap...!! He didn't mention Ruth Ellis to me..
