…one of those images I wish were not in my mind….
By the time of Tony Blair’s historic landslide victory in 1997, he was a key figure in New Labour and a close friend and confidant of Blair – the pair spent happy evenings strumming out Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry numbers together on their electric guitars. ‘The prime minister is a very, very good rhythm guitarist,’ Triesman once said.
A note from Lucy Chaloner:
The funeral is on Thursday (20th May) at 1pm in St Peter’s church in Belsize Square, Belsize Park NW3 and will be non religious, just in the format of a reading with friends and family sharing memories, stories and his work. This will be followed by drinks and some nibbles at the back of the church before we move on to a nearby pub.
If you can attend, please let Lucy know at l.chaloner@DELETETHISbtinternet.com or 07939 317 191.
After a lot of unnecessary wasted time I’ve managed not only to deactivate, but to delete (I hope completely) my old Facebook account. I’ve not bothered with it for more than a year (it was slightly interesting as a concept when it began) and the tsunami of banal I glimpsed during the removal process made me glad to be back in the world where friend means friend.
James Brown’s online venture Sabotage Times (we can’t concentrate so why should you? is well worth checking out… not least for the Keith Richards interview and for political football fans, the 1978 World Cup extract.
David’s funeral will be at St Peter’s Church, Belsize Square, NW3 4HY, at 1:00 pm next Thursday, 20th May.
I got some relief from the odious political landscape by looking down on it from a great height: I also learned that ships make clouds.

….. my six copies
To the Duke of York cinema at 4pm for the premiere of Chris Morris’ film Four Lions. A kindhearted film with a faint aura of Cliff Richard’s Summer Holiday. Birds, sheep, policemen and Heimlich-manoueuvring Samaritans explode. The swearing is in Sheffield accented English and Urdu. Perfect casting and a memorable script. If we can’t get a laugh out of our home-grown jihadis there’s not much left but to wait for Cameron to piss on us and call it trickle-down. Morris has made a quintessentially English film, an Ealing comedy up-to-date. It will need subtitles for the subtitles for the US where those who find it funny will give me slight hope.
