Luke's winner of the caption contest is number 1. We liked 2 and 3 a lot as well so, they get a signed copy of the ONE cd.

So folks, if you wrote any of these captions email to edgar.broughton1@btinternet.com with your postal details, telling us which is your slogan and we'll send the goodies.

By the way if there had been a team prize for multiple entries Otter would have won that too.

1 One day, Luke my son, this face will be yours

 2 Just how much botox did you give me?
 
3 What do you mean Kenny Dalglish is in goal for the Everton game????


NICE ONE FOLKS!


OK
So you didn't win but ....
 you still want one.
The FIRST person to work out the missing sentence in the coded pic below and email it to me gets the Harvest Years boxed cd set.
Here is a clue - THE LAST LINE IS ALL YOU NIED.
There are slightly varying versions of this text but Jim (from Bristol) was first to identify the text and to send me a version of it with the missing last line so he wins.

Nice one Jim!

"They first came for the Communists and I didn't speak up- because I wasn't a Communists. Then they came for the Jews and I didn't speak up- because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists and I didn't speak up- because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics and I didn't speak up- because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me- and by that time no one was left to speak up."

Pastor Martin Niemoeller






When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark

At the end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of the lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown

Walk on walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark

At the end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of the lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown

Walk on walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk

You'll never walk
You'll never walk alone.

Inspiring words and a truly great song from Rodgers and Hammerstein. As an LFC supporter it means a great deal to me. Things are not going well for our team at this time but it is a fairly insignificant problem when I consider what is happening in the UK as a result of Government policies. There are times when it can feel as though the walk is a solo exercise. I guess we all know that feeling. Some of you write to me and tell me about some of the difficult walks you are undertaking. Sharing is good.

As some of you will know I have been spending a lot of my time sounding off about the issues raised by the Cut Deep Cut Fast policies of the ConDems and it’s time to get back to making music for a week or two.
While I realise that not every one who likes the music is of the same political persuasion as yours truly, it would be good to know who is willing to walk the walk. So, let me know if you would like to be part of a steering group for First Supper Actions. Let me know if you are someone who wants to give teeth to The First Supper in 2011. What ever your views are I welcome your feedback, thoughts and your suggestions.

I have decided to leave this post until The Hot Phones demo on Monday the 31st of January and won’t be posting again until the day after on Tuesday the 1st of February. Keep the stream of humorous captions coming for The Harvest Years competition. When Luke picks the winner I will announce it on this post. The winner can contact us by email and we'll send the goodies.

I haven’t a clue what will happen at Anfield on Sunday when we play Everton but I would be very happy with a BIG SOCIETY - 1   Con Dems - 0  score on Monday the 31st of January.




I have just got copies of THE HARVEST YEARS the 4 cd Edgar Broughton Band  boxed set from EMI. There are 6 previously unreleased live tracks from the 1970 Hyde park Concert.
So best caption for the photographic blast from the past above, will receive a signed copy. Usual rules. Leave as many "captions" as you like as comments (no emails for this competition please). Competition ends on FRIDAY 22ND.
Luke will be judge on this one.


It is my belief that for the cost of a phone call it might be possible to make an effective protest against Government policy providing enough people made a call at roughly the same time. 
The ConDems have said they will instigate large scale consultation by referendum and petition in order to canvas the people on matters of policy. The Government already has a website for the purpose of receiving  petitions with more than 500 signatures. http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/
It was set up by New Labour but is now suspended. I would like to see it reinstated. It seems a reasonable demand and one in the spirit of democracy and THE BIG SOCIETY.
So - What would happen if lots of people phoned / emailed Conservative head Office and the Lib Dem head office on the 31st of January to ask -

Why is the Government petitions site suspended?
When will it be possible to submit new petitions?

After a small but successful "event", further "events" of larger dimensions could be delivered on a regular basis e.g. the 31st of every month.

I will be making my call at 11.30 am on the 31st of January. I will be emailing as many people as I can, inviting them to join me by calling and or emailing the ConDem one or more times during 31st January. If you are going to join me please invite your family and friends to join in.
It's a cheap, legal, experiment that could have a positive outcome or at least disrupt the Condem machinery for a while.

If any one out there would like to join me  you could call

Conservative Campaign Headquarters at:
0207 222 9000

You could also email David Cameron at:

You could call the Lib Dems at:
0207 222 7999.

You could also email Nick Clegg at:
https://www.libdems.org.uk/contact.aspx

If any one would like to help me organise things a few days before please email me.

peace

EDGAR,

Contact you where Edgar here about the steering group? Email? How? Whats it involve?

Have to comment on your previous post with the picture of the pig in taxpayers money this is an insult to pigs everywhere! I am taking it as an analogy for 'Happy as pigs in s**t?' Pigs are very clean animals and this idea of them being filthy is a myth. I represent all the pigs who do not want their good name tarnished by being likened to 'filthy' politicians! LOL!

Re comp caption how about:

'Hey I can do Kenneth Williams.'

Dave said...

After a night in Redcar Police cells im in need of a pick me up whos for Cod and Chips my mate Dave tells me they are a local delicacey,

Otter said...

Yes Dave, I agree, Redcar Fish and Chips would have been nice rather than the runny fried egg on a paper plate with no eating utensils that was served as breakfast on that July Monday morning in 1971.
