Will the March leave London and March to Boston, Lincolnshire and other #Brexit low-spots? #Farage is marching to London like someone like Bede from somewhere like Jarrow. Anyone marching outwards? To the coasts. Where Cliff Richard sang to remind of the Saviour’s Day?


It started out as a feeling

Which then grew into a hope

Which then turned into a quiet thought

Which then turned into a quiet word

And then that word grew louder and louder

So! I read “EU” in Biblical Greek (!?) means “Well” !? And is pronounced “you” . And that I should listen to this again James (though they did not show this version: the one your friends would have updated if they had any guts):

I don’t want to say much. Just, look:

What does it take? Sir John Major or (better? Junker) agreeing to re-make (and star in) a key dance scene from the first Austin Powers movie (but with recognisable tourist and science and industry backdrops from every country?):

So much news this week so far!

Is it just me thinking that if we dared to be more like the more innovative politicians in the USA we’d have a group of newly-together MPs from left and right making a little video, dancing, around the corridors of Westminster:

The Brextremists discovered they could survive Have I Got News for You and gain credibility! So, why not… “have some fun” …

This thread is getting a bit strange! A kind of cliquey, lyric-link, game.

I think it began with wanting to inspire the right people to use a crowd-funder or similar to help create some campaign music videos that capture the purest ideas of Europe in Britain and Britain in Europe and both in the world and the Universe (well, space tech, etc anyway).

From there, I think Julia and James, you’ve got a bit caught up in something else! Maybe it was fun for you both once; but this is a serious time and we need serious people. #TheAmericanPresident #Movies

Albeit serious people with a sense of joy as it was, is and can be!

P.S. The reference to #BrewstersMillions and #NoneOfTheAbove I did get! That too, might be a fun play at a General Election. If expensive for the UK taxpayer if it works! But, then, so might Brexit be! #OneLeapInTheDarkIsAsGoodAsAnother #CrazyLongHashtags

P.P.S. I do still get #OutCummingsCummings but James does have a point: focus is needed! It’s a work-day! We all have work to do!

Blunt, James, blunt.

The birds still fly through the underground. Well, the odd pigeon on the Circle Line at least!

Where did we begin this? With Sting’s “Fields of Gold” and women, from 28 countries and of a variety of ages, running through them? Happy? Free?

Choose, James. You always liked C.S. Lewis; so choose:

“Surprised by joy!”

“The Great Divorce” .

Who are you building all those new houses for anyway? really?

Cui bono! It’s a beautiful day!

Indeed Miss Manzarari! Indeed! But, do try not to get carried away like Europa on the Bull (market of the nineties and “naughties” !). You cannot persuade the 52% (or whatever it now is!) That the EU is a good thing. Right now, most think we should be more like Switzerland (without realising Switzerland is in the Schengen area and has had less control over its borders than the UK!)!? The whole situation is crazy. The 52 (or whatever!) % got less than grade whatever in maths and English and probably didn’t even take history – let alone European history: 1945 to the Lisbon Treaty. They are clueless. And few (if any) in power speaks their language. Seriously. So… once maybe, you Haddaway… but the videos weren’t from all over Europe and the world… there was no effort to build what y’all needed!

That I can’t deny! As for Tory turn-coats. I grant you there are some lefty Blairites hidden in the ranks. Cameron brought them in.

Mind Control? Try mixing up “The Master Race” (Simms, 2007: “The Sound of Drums” ) and “Life on Mars” (Simms, 2006, BBC). That and Bowie’s “Life on Mars” (theme tune) and The Feeling’s “Over But It’s Not” (find the chord(s)…)….

But, no,…

Don’t dwell on the similarities or otherwise between Gene Hunt and the Brexiteer generals; nor on secret time-travel or Russian worm-holes or… !?

Peace be with you!

I’d be cautious, Julia. Many things old Hitler said were commonplace views of the Roman Catholic Church in earlier centuries. Bit like extremist Muslims (with their views on women) in past decade or two: figures of public “hate” as in George Orwell’s “1984” . As a new generation was taught to vent it’s ire at them, the older generations were taught the views of yesteryear were no longer acceptable.

Mind-control, dear. Whether intentional or otherwise!

Progress upwards requires steps. And I don’t mean…

Still, prayers might not go amiss.

When I need a bit of inspiration, Jo, I search for “Brexit song” on youtube.

They’re mostly c#+p; but, y’know… we can dream of better…

Should I be almost forgetting that it is less than two months, now, until Brexit Day? Should I be remembering what I know of “Black Wednesday” ? Should I be living my life like it all doesn’t really have an impact? Should I be acting and thinking and feeling as if I cannot change a thing?

Should I know?
