Thank you, New York City

Thank you, New York City

On Saturday night the Empire State Building in New York City lit up with the faces of endangered species throughout the planet - including Cecil The Lion. This spectacular and beautiful art-piece went largely unreported in the UK news. This is because:

1. David Cameron, the British Prime Minister, does not agree with any form of social justice for animals, and is working very hard on extending laws to hunt and kill animals. He will not consult the British people on this subject, because he is aware that they do not agree with him. Precisely how and why the British people feel the way they do is of no interest to David Cameron. On the other hand, Cameron lambasts Putin for ignoring the views of the Russian people. You really can have it both ways in politics.

2. The Buckingham Palace dictators (especially William and Harry) are passionate animal-killers in the Walter Palmer tradition. Harry has been suspected by the police of killing endangered species for fun, but magically no charges were brought against him.

3. Under UK law, there is only one species on the planet worthy of protective laws, and that species is the most destructive species of them all: the human being.

It is all very well for Jimmy Kimmel to "almost break down" on live television whilst reporting the murder of Cecil The Lion, but Kimmel is also a defender of Duck Dynasty, and he is unable to spot his own hypocrisy.

Meanwhile, Obama (who was in Africa during the week that Cecil was murdered) has nothing to say on this raging global issue, and neither does David Cameron. They want to protect their trophy hunter friends who donate large sums to any political party that will leave the hunters free to kill at will.

Obama now wishes to distract everyone's attention with his apparent concern about 'climate change' - yet he fails to mention the number one cause of climate change, which, as we all know, is the meat industry. Beyond money, nothing matters.

Yes, abysmal human slaughter happens every day throughout the world, but Cecil The Lion is important because animal rights is now the biggest social justice issue on the planet.

The US government say they cannot locate Walter Palmer (whom the government of Zimbabwe are demanding to stand trial). If Walter Palmer were guilty of tax evasion the US government would locate him in four minutes.

Cilla Black, RIP

Cilla Black, RIP

There's no way back to the world you knew. The Smiths covered Cilla's Work Is A Four-letter Word, just as they covered Twinkle's Golden Lights (Twinkle also died this year), just as I covered Lynn Anderson's Rose Garden, and of course, Lynn slipped away last week.
Never stationary throughout the 1960s, Cilla Black made some great records - The Right One Is Left, Suffer Now I Must, It's For You, I've Been Wrong Before, What Good Am I?

I'm very grateful for the songs, and it never occurred to me that such people could die.

Lynn Anderson comments on Morrissey

I was very excited that he gave the song a "Classic" reading ... as if he was very familiar with my record!

What a very cool compliment! His band did a GREAT JOB! They Rocked The Opry!

Yeah!!! 8)

Lynn Anderson, RIP


31 July 2015

Lynn Anderson, RIP

A few weeks ago we were proud to play our version of 'Rose garden' on stage in Nashville in honor of the great Lynn Anderson.

Tonight, we hear that Lynn has gone. We were just a hand's breadth away.

Impossible, impossible, impossible.

no words amongst the sadness ...
