Now that's impressive... Not sure about the scary woman in red, tho'...

Seeing my visible excitement, my youngest daughter says, 'Now Mum, you are sad..."

I've just had another go at trying to work-out what this "My Space" thing is and I'm still non the wiser.

Maybe I'm getting too old.

Al, Myspace is especially good for music (it got the artic monkeys number 1) utube is another good outsource free site.
I think I read somewhere you were or are still involved in the music industry. So maybe you could come up the 'tax credit blues' (maybe rock style, cos thats my pref, Queen or Clapton...Even A Rod Stewart type ballad would be nice. But hey I'm no simon cowell
I'll help get it online on myspace...but please no comments 'play it again sammy'

I'm only semi kidding here! Strange things happen via the Internet

Just thought, potentially there are a qualified 600,000 downloads here and thats only from affected people, you get number 1 in the download charts with only 50,000. Now that would be big news!

Yes I was in the biz for a long time (20+ years all told), but I've been out of it for a long time too and it's a case of "been there, done that, got the scars to prove it too".

"Freebie hit record"; "'tax credit blues'"?? Sammy, you need to talk to Paula. We came up with some alternative song lyrics at one time, including 'HMRC' (YMCA), which could be adapted to incorporate some of Robert's ideas. Getting a song on utube is, I'm sure, something we could carry off between us. Would just need to know if it's okay, copyright-wise, to keep the song tune or if we need to alter it as they used to do on shows like 'Spittin' Image' or 'French and Saunders', to make it more obviously a send-off? Paula's got some song ideas stashed, I could help put a few ideas together (not claiming any special talent here,but I'm sure a collective effort would be good), Alan's a musician, Paula knows some, Robert's got some interesting stats. which we could stick into something like 'HMRC', and Sammy's got the technical knowhow. I can imagine Sammy 'et. Al' now, competing for the nattiest costume, in cowboy hat or police officer garb, with monstrous moustaches.... More ideas if anyone's interested - any proceeds to our soon-to-be-ready campaign account!

Yes Sammy, I'm retired and tired too. It's been years since I touched either a guitar or Jack Daniels and I would be in trouble if I ever did again. As for the "Broon Dog" you're right, it isn't what it once was and these days it isn't even brewed in Newcastle!

The "real" Newcastle brewery is being pulled down right now and the bottling plant is a car park!

"The Dog" is being brewed at the Federation Brewery which was a rival to Scottish & Newcastle. It's in Dunston which is on the Gateshead side of the river (south) and it's bottled somewhere in Yorkshire!

Why 'in trouble'? You're not tone deaf, are you?

Chris Rea?..
Well I'm standing by the revenue
But justice doesn't flow
It boils with every poison you can think of
And I'm underneath ole Primo
But the light of joy I know
Scared beyond belief way down in the shadows
And the perverted fear of justice
Chokes a smile on the taxmans face
And honesty is not ringing out the bell
This ain't no technological breakdown
Oh no, this is the government's road to hell

And all the courts jam up with revenue spew
It's all just bits of evidence flying away from you
Oh look out claiments, take a good look
What comes down here
You must learn this lesson fast and learn it well
This is the family tax credit spell
This ain't no upwardly mobile benefit
Oh no, this is the road
This is the road
This is the govenments road to hell
