How will the captain get his weird comics out to his fanbase of 5 people?!

oi his comic was good. although why i'm being loyal when hes fucked off to see beanis and i'm sitting here feeling lonely in a big spooky house is beyond me. no fuck that. hes a loser with no sense of marketing opportunities.
i think we'll cope without him.

Yeah I thought his comic on love and relationships was especialy brilliant!

sadly, no. if only he'd written about his lifechanging experiences with rainforest tribes in his gap year....

the education meeting will be at 11 - so i'd like to be at the bookfair before that, sorry!

which probably means an early start again...

dont say that publicly! Now at least half of the Red & Black minibus participants will cancel... sad

Too bad we wont meet again mate, would have been good. But i can totally understand, after all it clashes with the seasons most important hair product fair - they should synchronise these things!

Only if the button and this guy are the only other attendees

yeah i'll be on holiday in the states, which is a shame, would've been good to see everyone again. But if you like i could get gav to bring a picture of me to put on the table or something?

Since I'm not broke this time I'm actually looking forward to the bookfair part. If they're still selling I'd love an ASBO hoodie from Clarse War. I might be broke by the time we get back. grin

As a very interesting sidenote: stuff your mugs are travelling to london in the infamous Red & Black tourbus!

one more possible taker for a seat - awaiting for confirmation. I suggest we cap this at 14? Or should we just have a nice anc cosy tight ride down and take full 17 people? I guess it should be ok as long as you dont have to sit in between couple fat bastards like me!

Just wanna say two things:

NW peeps:

Looking forward to meeting you guys! Love the thread title JDMF!

John:

I wanna know why other peeps eg BB and JDMF on here and Revol and JC on other threads get away with teasing you about your hair, but when I did you got all huffy. sad
It doesn't 'gel' with me somehow. (Soz - couldn't resist that one!)smile

Love

i think if we can we should take as many as poss. I think I can always take the train anyways, as I may have accidentally ordered a ticket (I can't remember if I did or no)

after the obligatory avoiding of riot cops, running back into the crowd for the ones who get lost underfoot, tearing refused away from the class war t-shirts etc (give the sick boy time to choose his class war hoodie of 2006)so it should be after the pub then. who needs books anyway?
although, what i really really think is that the people driving the bus should have the ultimate decision on what time it gets driven back.

i think we left really early, like 7, but then got stuck to the football traffic and it took us over an hour just to get out of central london, and we were in manchester at midnight.

Need to ask from comrade J. when does he want to leave (the main driver). I'll email him straight away.

hey i spoke to Comrade J. and he suggested that we would start leaving back at 7.30. This would give 2.5 hours effective pub crawl time and we would be back in manchester at midnight(ish).

thats simply not enough time! Unless you northerners are even more lightweight than your reputation suggests that is.

the hardcore ones will start at noon already. The activisty easily exited politicos like me will stay at the bookfair till the last minute and only pops in to the pub to say hi.
