I Stand for Parliament

11 04 2010

Dear Friends –

I need your POWER!

I am standing for Parliament this General Election – May 6th.
I am not running against any Party or anyone else. I go under the banner of Medway Independent. This is a handful of good guys at Gillingham’s Old Anchorian (rugby) Club.
I’m running for the safety and dreams of the children of Gillingham and Rainham, those who do not fit in, not with schoolwork, not with a system dominated with maths & science. School ignores our peerless local history.
Medway history inspired me to great endeavour. It can do so for all those knots of kids on street corners, currently without much hope. I can turn then into the same as their grandfathers and beyond, for they were heroes. This is what I was made for, and for which I won international top honours.

Ladbrooks are betting me 100 – 1 to win the seat. Please Facebook friend, tell everyone you know about this campaign. It is the best last chance for our ‘incorrigible’ youth.
We win, we change the world.

Yes, I am on the ballot seems for Parliament this general election.

The chances of being voted in is on a par with getting struck by lightning. But then some are struck by lightning! A Guinness colleague was hit 7-times!!!!!!!
This March I cycled 150-miles and spoke to every business in Gillingham and hometown Rainham. I also canvassed the most notorious estate and hot spots and found beleagued, working class English. A picture of niceness. No other candidate had ever been seen there.
I am trying to get out my lauded alternative whereby all kids, no matter how bad at school, can become the best that they can be. i.e. great!

Hold onto your hats!

George — as ever!

‘Envelope of Security’

31 01 2010

The 17th of January 2010 was the anniversary of the Great Hanshin Earthquake. I missed it because I was with my family in far off Gifu. The night before Geoffrey had mislaid his passport, and by the time I’d got to Nagoya Station, the last train to Kansai had gone. I returned. Next morning the family all wrote their names into the wet cement outside out house: date ‘17th January 1995.’ Afterwards we went inside to learn the terrible news from the TV. Why had I been kept away. It seemed after all, my old adventure days “envelope of security” was still functioning.

Calling the Lost Girl’s Name

30 01 2010

In the China quake of a couple of years back, it was a toppled school. Sitting atop the wreckage was mother; her sole child was dead under all this. She shouted from the the downed concrete roof for 6-days, calling the lost girl’s name.

Jeanette’s Song

29 01 2010

Jeanette had survived 6-days without food and water. Her hand was broken under a fallen pillar. But without electricity and tools they could not get her out. Another tremor was persistent concern. Firemen from LA appeared and with gas cutters they retrieved bank lady. After 6-days of absolute, lonely black darkness this astonishing Haitian emerged and burst into song: “I am not afraid to die.”

Jeanette of Haiti

26 01 2010

Husband went to the collapsed bank every day, hoping against hope that his wife was still alive down under there somewhere. He still believed so. Day Six brought in heavy machinery, which was sure to crush any pockets of survival under the concrete. Each time the big machine paused, husband would rush forward to shout and to listen. Then he heard his wife, Jeanette!
“Even if I die, I Love YOU so much; don’t forget it!”

Changing & Unchanging Japan

7 11 2009

My former boss recieved a Japanese knighthood from the emperor. Another, whom I thought hated me, kindly asked after my health. And yet another invited me to an ancient Japanese Noh play.

Tonight “Sayanara.”
