Conference Season Reveals Voters’ “Option”..

Let’s face it - whichever party we get in power they will put the fat cats, who caused the economic crisis and who pull their strings, before the people and the country.

Paul Newman dies

My favourite actor and a very great human being. The world cannot afford to lose people like Paul Newman.

Robert De Niro

The ultimate outsider for me - Travis Bickle, repulsed and alienated by the society and environment he was an invisible part. The everyman who hit back.

As you sew, so shall you reap

So the brave souls who want rid of Gordon Brown are finally crawling out from under their rocks. In the good old days, when the Labour Party was still a slightly left of centre party, they may not have had the greatest record in national elections, but they did at least they have loyalty and belief in what they stood for, and most crucially they gave people like me representation. New Labour and it's strident march to the right removed all of that as they adopted 'as the wind blows' policies. Now Gordon Brown, as one of the leading proud architects of New Labour, is suffering the side effects of creating a party with no ideals, nor aims, apart from amoral personal survival. So he now faces the the army of cockroaches creeping out of the crumbling cracks of the New Labour movement, intent on devouring themselves and the rest of the amoral shower who stole my party. New Labour disenfranchised me and millions of others when they simply continued the slash and burn polcies of the previous Tory government. For me the creation of the loathesome NICE (the government's manditory euthanasia orgnisation) sums up all the evils that we have all simply taken in our stride as far right politics become the norm for us all.

Michael Caine

I’m a big fan of Len Deighton and I love the 60s Harry Palmer films. Michael Caine was the ultimate in understated cool in the role and a great icon for the times. The Ipcress File is supposedly the best but I think Funeral in Berlin beats it hands down.
