Anyway, here’s the cheat clip for tonight’s music round at the Newsroom:

The full version of the song is elsewhere, but this is the bit of the song that everyone my age remembers: the Daley Thompson bit, the Lucozade bit.

Advertising was a powerful influence of the early-1980s mind of a child. We genuinely thought the drink would make us run very quickly.

But for some reason, we only ever got to drink it if we were off school with the chicken pox or whatever.

What a waste!

POLITICS THURSDAY

By the way- Thursday is the day when I express my opinion on the crazy world of politics

This week’s point: PLANET IS DOOMED (UNDER CAPITALISM).

Capitalism is the dominant life-form on the planet. Capitalism requires MORE. Profit can only come from expanding markets and more sales.

Therefore, any idea of consuming LESS is not tolerated.

But it is only consuming LESS (on a grand scale) that will reverse climate change.

Therefore the only consumer messages with a environmental impact which are given their head are “RECYCLE” and “REUSE”, while “REDUCE” is ignored as cranky.

The thing with RECYCLE is that you can make a new thing and sell it. Capitalism is aroused by this.  REUSE means a something new in the first place and Capitalism is still interested in this.

But REDUCE has no interest for any entrepreneur. Buy less? What is the point of that?

So it gets ignored. Even though it’s the only action that will fix anything. You can fill your car with green fuel or you can walk. Know what I mean?

Disagree? Come and argue with me at the quiz.
