Seems very clear.

 

"Has he gone?"

 

"No he hasn't".

‘Nobody’ hasn’t had a ‘mare or Jones hasn’t gone?

 Logical ambiguity

He answered the first question clearly.

 

If he had also answered the second question, there would have been a second answer.

 

There was no second answer, so no ambiguity at all "asked and answered"!!

From the other day, Bruce on Jones https://www.telegraph.co.uk/euro-2021/2021/07/11/frightening-steve-holland-outspoken-graeme-jones-meet-englands/

 

“The one thing I knew he would be is hard-working,” explained Bruce. “He will plan and plan to make sure that the training is right, and he is strong-minded. What you want to avoid in management is people who just say yes to you the whole time.

 

“He’s driven, he’s a typical Geordie, rolls his sleeves up and gets stuck into it. I can’t speak highly enough of him. He brought something to us last season.

 

“The other thing I liked about him was how quickly he integrated into the team behind the team. I’ve never had one voice around me and he has been a terrific addition.”

 

“Gareth liked the fact that he had that international experience – he’s used to being alongside big names,” Bruce added. “When you’ve been around the likes of Hazard, Lukaku and De Bruyne, he wasn’t going to be fazed going into the England dressing room. That will have helped enormously and he will not be telling Gareth what he wants to hear.

 

“He’ll have an opinion and Gareth will make the decisions. That’s why he was my first choice at Newcastle – that and the fact he is from the North East and this club means something to him.”

He's fucking obsessed.

He's basically describing the Ashley recruitment model which saw him get his own job here. [emoji38]

Doesn't sound like he actually has a clue what Jones' strengths are.
