This review is from: Going to Sea in a Sieve: The Autobiography (Kindle Edition)
I was looking forward to reading this as I have always though of him as a guy that did well despite a less than wealthy background.
Ok, so I realise that you are supposed to reveal all in your autobiography and I am sure cocky-chappy Danny has left some of the even worse details out. I also realise that celebrities all have feet of clay....But....
What he has included leaves you with no doubt that he has few morals or scruples and is proud of the fact.
He emerges as a chancer and an opportunist that has led a charmed, lucky life where others would have rightly ended up in jail.
In this scrappy, often fragmented life story we learn of a self confessed regular 'boozer' who still gets out of his head at least once a week.
A proud-to-be-common-low-life-Londoner, who tells of stealing from every employer and helping his criminal father in various jolly criminal acts. I can now imagine him dancing around singing..."#Ho Ho ya gotta pick-a-pocket-or-two...#"
'Successful' he may be, but a role model for anyone he most certainly is NOT.
