Peace be with you too, Anthony!

And with us all: big event on 20 Feb:

P.S. If Brexit Day will be like leaving the #BigBrother house, what will the UK’s “Best Bits” look like? #Neighbours #EverythingsNotAwesome

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?

Enough! James, have you watched ‘Pretty Woman’? “Sex sells”, sure! But money can’t buy you love… or a kiss… “If you wanna know… it’s in… kiss”. Trop Cher cherie!

Great track! #CocaCola loved it “back in the day” ; but, #Kiss really? Though I’m embarrassed to admit it, “sex sells” . Even more so in Europe we’re told. Look at the past successes of Rene Artois’ waitresses from ’Allo ’Allo (BBC even managed to sell that into Germany too in the end)! Look at Berlusconi! Look at all the other things below!

#Kiss?! Hah indeed! This would be better!

Hah! You want classical music? Rite of Spring? Yes! Maybe! But if you want that why not commission some new words for Ode to Joy? 28/27 different languages: mash them up; make them work and rhyme and rhythm together. YEM should commission more than the bikinis!

This kiss is for the whole world! Which one? Commission a photo competition? Was it the kisses at the end of the war? The kiss from Judas? The kiss from your true lover? Which kind of kiss was it?

How does kiss translate in your language?

#OutCummingCummings? Do you really think 28+ scantily clad ladies wearing flag bikinis will pick-up the votes Cummings and his data analysts so “cleverly” found: the #BNP and #EDL supporters, the voters disillusioned by the collapse of non-educated “industries” : the ex-steel workers, ex-coal miners, ex-dockers, ex-farm labourers and ex-farmers and others left in the dust of economic change? Not to mention the ex-servicemen and others dumped from the economic band-wagon by the latest round of “cuts” ?

Get real. Even if they are “suggestive” / “nudgeable” , their hardship and the hardship of their families who have seen them suffering from long-term unemployment has been and remains a day-to-day reality. That guy on the Cumberbatch thing who was meant to be working for “Remain” didn’t get that anger. They want to “take back control”; that’s code for regaining self-respect and an identity.

They remember a Christian England in the 1980s and earlier. They remember four, even three, channels on TV so that had an iceberg rather than a snowball’s chance in he’ll of having common viewing to discuss with strangers who were countrymen – and so their children had a hope of escaping a cultural ghetto on the playground. Now they don’t even understand their own children: children familiar with pewdie pie but not the news let alone Songs of Praise.

The UK is atomised. Immigrants into that bubble in satellite-TV driven bubbles and there is less to bind any of us together. HM Queen Elizabeth II’s Christmas message? Even that has to “compete” with an “alternative” on channel 4 not to mention hundreds of other channels.

haven’t even started on Babe station and the like! Your video/meme plans are tame (in the extreme) compared to that socio-political Leaver!

Brokenshire is an understatement. Europe is a media mess. Europeans heads are a media mess. There is no common core. There is nothing all can see. No narrative. No dialogue. No common stories all can relate to.

Except by very local word of mouth.

So there’s your irony Cummings exploited! The more “connected” we are, the less “connected” we are.

Planet Earth is re-forming into split groups. Nationality means more to some than others; the planet means more to some than others.

The two are pulling apart. Like an orchestra of players each looking at different music.

It sounds worse than the Rite of Spring.

At least with Elgar England can re-create its own new sound.

Too much competition! The “nanny” state is no longer “in loco parents” . She’s left the nation with too much “screen time” …

Don’t know who this MandiHales isn’t this the song and kind of thing? British star falling out of the EU flag?
Jo Florentine
commented 2019-02-04 19:28:14 +0000
If you can find her, “event geek” MandiHales might be just what you guys need. Linked to the “Grid Girls” maybe. Also maybe with a few mainland European contacts (indirectly Berlusconi?), she might be able to sort things. She may also be a bit of a seamstress or know a few in the industry, or know others that do. But, be wise, this is sensitive territory, #metoo and others angered a few of the grid girls and others and, though avoiding the “objectification” of women is as important as avoiding the “objectification” of men (like the Chippendales), there are other arguments. A rounded, objective, view is often useful. Think “The Full Monty” , with a cheeky smile but without the coarseness of “Monty Python” …

Bill, are you hinting at that music video for the less-than-subtle “Hands Up For Detroit” by Fedde le Grand? The one that seemingly hinted at raising voting hands to support Federal government subsidies for the ailing (car) manufacturing industry of Detroit? Sunderland becomes S-undie(s)land with some dubious lyrics to persuade recalcitrant MPs to back further subsidies to bring the Japanese back to the table? It’s not got Ken Clarke but maybe it’s got the kind of man Pauletta’s looking for?
Bill Pounds
commented 2019-02-03 22:00:40 +0000
Calm down ladies! Ken Clarke seems very unlikely to release his “Pecs” for public consumption… as for all these Euro “lookers” /models/actresses, surely if they were going to do something like this they’d have done it already! You can’t over-excite the market you know. This new EU-Japan trade deal already looks like seeing Nissan shifting it’s manufacturing back to Japan (for direct export to the EU ex-UK). This is serious stuff! The shop floor at the Nissan plant aren’t going to be going for your Euro Bras, etc! Even if Eva, Claudia Schiffer and a bunch of others start cat-walking the car-plants.

Geraldine, you’ll remember Eva Herzigová and Wonderbra’s “Hello boys” campaign of 1994 then! What an advert for the Czech Republic that was! Put that together with Sabrina’s track: the days when girls were, according to those producing these things, saying “Hello” to boys! Wonder whether Eva would don the EU bikini-top?
