Danny will be fine come the glorious day. We will look at his hands and see that he has done some work. His huge house will be taken for a school though, and he will be assigned some useful job, like growing daffodils, or sharpening knives.

Arise ye workers from your slumbers
Arise ye prisoners of want
For reason in revolt now thunders
And at last ends the age of cant.
Away with all your superstitions
Servile masses arise, arise
We’ll change henceforth the old tradition
And spurn the dust to win the prize.

So comrades, come rally
And the last fight let us face
The Internationale unites the human race.

No more deluded by reaction
On tyrants only we’ll make war
The soldiers too will take strike action
They’ll break ranks and fight no more
And if those cannibals keep trying
To sacrifice us to their pride
They soon shall hear the bullets flying
We’ll shoot the generals on our own side.

No saviour from on high delivers
No faith have we in prince or peer
Our own right hand the chains must shiver
Chains of hatred, greed and fear
E’er the thieves will out with their booty
And give to all a happier lot.
Each at the forge must do their duty
And we’ll strike while the iron is hot.

I nearly said that Danny would be first against the **** (nearer the truth), but I've got a theory bn that you came to CMS as part of the GCHQ surveillance of online activity, and rather than marrying someone in the group, stayed to make 16000+ posts. While the aims of your organisation have been undermined by the ethos of the board, I couldn't provoke you with any genuine subversiveness.

Obviously you got KP's autobiography early to scrutinise it for revolutionary intent.

Wasn't he sacked during the last IPL?


He does the onfield interviews before IPL matches, during breaks and the IPL discussion show before matches, between innings break and post match as well.

I watched the England innings against Scotland on my laptop with the sound off - and switching to read the CMS posts for 'commentary' - well done everybody!

Coney is having a superb series. Watching him on CWOTV and The Verdict and his punditry is high quality, in style and content.

I like Smith. I'm finding Lloyd and Warne painful. I'd rather listen to Botham...

Having become aware that the commentators are told by Strauss/Downton to be 'positive' about the team (Strauss told off Agnew for suggesting the Aussies are favourites for the Ashes), I'm treating Hussain Pollyanna-ism with suspicion.
