Paul and Laura a Marriage on the Marathon Run

I don’t know if it is the first time that this has happened but Paul and Laura ran the 2015 London Marathon and at some point got married along the way and then carried on. I hope that they finished and good luck for them in the future.

Jesus – Did he really run the 2015 London Marathon

You will see many sights when you watch the London Marathon but I have never seen Jesus before and carrying a cross. Very impressive.

UK Election 2015 – time for a major change

With the UK general election almost upon us isn’t time that we had some radical changes? Here are some to think about:

1. Empty properties in London and other major cities, if they are not being lived in by the owners for more than a month per year then the local councils have the right to rent them out at affordable rents to people. This would stop the one percent using our cities and homes as investment vehicles.

2. Corporations, all corporations in retail, food, clothing and entertainment to be limited. Let’s put individuality, small owners, family businesses back into the running of our cities.

3. Commercial property owners of retail space, cap and reduce the rent they can charge allowing non corporate businesses to start and flourish.

I’m sure that there are a few more that we can think of to divide up the wealth in a fairer way.

Let’s break the chains that bind us the ninety nine percent.

Wild Tales – Relatos Savajes

I have just been to see this wonderful and very funny film that is wicked in its dark humour content. It takes every day situations, six of them, and exaggerates their outcomes. The film was produced by Almodovar and has his style stamped all over it. While waiting for the film to start there were several Hollywood trailers that featured many special visual and audio effects, car chases and killing people. In comparison then it would appear that Hollywood has not only lost the plot but lost all the plots. In Britain it would be nice to see some of the independent film makers products. The slops that Hollywood produced can’t be everything that comes out of the US.
