Players in the WSL had to have their own medical insurance despite being professional last season, and could be sacked if injured for more than 3 months? This is Stone Age stuff....albeit now improving slowly..
A few years ago, on this very forum, another poster and myself attempted to write some comedy - he came up with most of the ideas, and I wrote them down. Unfortunately we didn't get anywhere, mainly down to my poor advocacy. And, unfortunately due to increasing corporate security, I lost touch with him. Though we did meet up for a Fulham away game when we were in the PL where Jermaine Wright scored an equaliser I think.
Anyway I have converted what we did write into a comedy play, which is being performed at a local village hall by an amateur dramatic society not far from Ipswich this Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Now, I think his name was Iain, and he lived in Putney - which to my shame is all I can recall!
Basically I just wanted to let him know, that I will be submitting the play to a publishers and if it gets anywhere and other people pay to perform it, I'd like him to have half the writing credits and royalties, should that ever happen! So I need to know who he actually is - and in case you think you can get some easy money by declaring you are Spartacus, or Brian, or Iain, PM me and I'll ask some security questions that only my writing ex-colleague would know the answers to!
Not saying any more in this post as I have already gone further beyond the Frimley threshold than I intended!!
So apparently TIG want to form a political party called ChangeUK - but now Change.org UK are claiming tradename infringement if they do so - doesn't anybody check these these things before going public? It just make them look like a bunch of disorganised buffoons....
Just heard that one of my best mates from uni has been selected as the LibDem prospective parliamentary candidate for Northampton North for the next General Election, and as a Centrist Dad, I support him wholeheartedly (even though I don't live in Northampton North obviously).
Just wish I had the cojones to do something like that myself, though I was once rejected by the MRLP as my haircut at the time was deemed too sensible.
