Hi M.C. Thanks for comment on Dylan poem. I gave it another airing because of the Nobel which, personally, I can't take seriously even though I love him as a performer. That poem is important to me because it was the first poem I wrote after a 20 year hiatus and I have written and published loads since 2008.

Hi MC
Very funny
One simple comment made me think what I'd feel like when folk stopped telling me I looked well.
I think I'm getting close

Yes it's nice being able to take the mick, without the fear of losing one's head. That's true democracy.

thanks for the kind comments on 'Bayonet In The Shed' MC - wow - Kipling you say (hopefully the poet not the baker) thanks for the kind compliment - what with you and your Kipling and Stu referencing Billy Bragg - don't know whether to go old school or protest/punk. It's lined up to be rattled out as a song on my next CD - will have to decide quickly which direction to take it - thanks once again

Hi MC,
Sorry for delay in answering.

I acknowledge the EU is far from perfect, but I am of the mind that we would have to deal with them anyway, and we may be better off trying to change things from within rather than being outside with no say at all.

Yes, you are right I did mean safer financially. The problem as I see it is that we do not have all the industries we once had, and much of what is left is foreign owned. Our energy companies and utilities and most of our rail network are owned by EU countries.

Half our exports go to EU, and if we will still want to deal with them we would still have to abide by their rules. They are likely to slap import duties on our goods if we are no longer part of the EU.

While we may be paying them billions we get some of this back, and some have even argued that we get back more than we contribute. There seems to be no way of knowing for sure.

To be honest I am more concerned with Theresa May wanting to take us out of the ECHR but that is a separate subject.

Of course I don't know what the outcome of the vote will be but I do tend to believe that floating voters who are still unsure in June will either not vote at all or vote for the status quo, as better the devil you know.

However, we shall see.

I just realized you added another comment to The Warren House Inn. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I went on a classic rail trip to Buckingham from Kings X in Jan. 63 steam hauled throughout, and believe you me those carriages were freezing! Imagine the moor then - and of course some locos ran backwards with no protection for the enginemen. Ray

Hi M.C.
I still have memories of the Jacques lossier trio playing that familiar piece of Bach. On high days and holidays I would occasionally switch to king edwards cigars. You are of course right about having a pint with a hamlet, very nice!
i have occasionally trolled through some of the old adverts on you tube. I think my favourites were probably the late Leonard Rossiter and Joan Collins in the cinzano ad's

Hi MC, thanks for your comment on 'Shut up..' - I appreciate you taking the time to read and comment. As for ensuring a woman (or a man, for that matter) is content, I really believe only the person themselves can do so, it's not up to anyone else. I wonder, too, if contentment is the goal. For me, at least at the moment, I think the goal is finding the courage to voice my experience/ thoughts etc.
Thanks again.

thanks very much for commenting on Black Christmas - really pleased that you liked it. The profession is a hard one - and mothers would never want their sons to go down a mine - but, as I learned from school mates - sometimes that's all there was in order to make a living - at a time when there was a stigma to the alternative - being on the dole. Apologies for not responding sooner - I really must get my act together in 2016. Cheers
Ian

MC - I think you may have fallen into the trap that one or two others did about 'We Are The Dead'. It wasn't written about me and it wasn't looking for a reaction - it was written about a friend who passed away recently - and I felt he hadn't fulfilled his amazing talents as a musician, partly because he let those other things take over his life. Thanks for commenting

Hi MC
Thanks for taking the time to comment on Penalised.
I am an Englishman living in Scotland, and got (and still getting) tired of listening (local TV) to the moans. Apart from anything else, Oz scored 5 tries to 3, which I've always believed was what rugby was supposed to be about.

thanks for your, as usual, insightful comments on 'Don't Pay The Poets' MC - I think you're pretty close to the mark in what you say - and as I perform on pretty much the same circuit as Laura - let me tell you, it is prevalent to pay musicians, but not poets, even on the same bill. So these are cases where you've paid your dues, done the open mics and someone wants to put you on and present your words. Showing my hand here, but I never turn the gigs down - but the more it's given for free the more it's expected. Still, it is REALLY nice when you do get paid and certainly gives a lift to your self esteem
cheers
Ian

thanks for the kind words on 'On The Slag Heap' MC - once again I've been away too long and let the kind supportive comments go uncommented upon. You are right about the foreign ownership - whilst this government offers contracts for Power Stations to the Chinese, we break our own industry and let it die for want of Brtish ownership - a crying shame for all the families affected in that area and other 'northern' power(less) houses *ouch*

just an extra comment Mark. I love Tavistock, as it has a robust feel to it, possibly due to it being a stannary town. There is a sense that it has a powerful history , and apart from all this I just love the sound of it. I think I'm right in thinking Lustleigh is on the moor. Again one of my favourites places, as I cycled right over it in 1960 as a young lad - diabolical hills and excruciating; but such experiences ultimately endear one to the adversary!

Hi Mark. About Mobility poem. Thanks and I entirely take your point. There are plenty of glamorous older models around . It just seemed incongruous that whereas the adverts usually appear in the mags and back pages that I imagine are associated with the risks of the older generation the models are out of tune with those readers. It would not be the case in charity fundraising on TV for example where no horror is spared to plumb the emotional depths. By they way , I am sorry that you have the incapacity you mention; I took up motorcycling after a forty year gap, and must admit I just lost my nerve in the end! Especially as my wife was trembling with fear at home.
