I am interested in animal welfare and I am concerned about the fate of Barry's gorilla. This is a gorilla who has been for many years in the window of a barbershop near our house. What the heck does Barry think he is doing? OK, so the animal looks clean and clothed but it can't be much fun sitting in a window for all these years. Is he supposed to be some sort of model for Barry's hairdressing? I know what some of the men are like in Hull, but this is ridiculous. I have seen Barry out and about and he cuts a somewhat dissolute figure, regularly buying a paper and sitting about on a bench reading it and smoking. Once my son ventured into Barry's shop and emerged like a newly shorn lamb with a regular number two crew cut, his lovely blond locks all over the floor. I think Barry's establishment is altogether too masculine (I have read the magazines he leaves lying about) and he maybe needs to venture into female styling which may be a civilising influence.
