Re: Gigs 2014

Went to see Tom Hingley - ex Inspirals frontman in Glasgow last Friday night. He was doing an acoustic set and was very good, mainly his solo stuff but did his own take on a few of the better known Inspirals songs. He was in good voice and I was surprised at how accomplished he was on guitar. Also g...

Re: Last book read

All Hell Let Loose - Max Hastings account of WW2 - good overview of the conflict.
Before that I was reading F Scott Fitzgerald collection on kindle, The Great Gatsby and Tender is the Night both excellent, if a little bleak, especially the latter story.

Perversely enough the older I get the more left wing I become, I must be immaturing with age as someone once said of Tony Benn.

Re: FIGHT AGAINST AUSTERITY

Some basketball sized Tory MP with an upronounceable name, unless you're Polish, was caught on camera telling a one legged beggar to go get a job. Its the caring, sharing Tory Party. I suppose in this instance, Tebbit's get on your bike and look for work wouldn't be feasible.
