Conscription Call

‘Disappear’ – INXS

PONTEFRACT was ‘mixed’, wasn’t it? 
Like that altercation with my grandparents…  Well.  Today, Tom King announced that the UK needs another 1500 army volunteers for the coming Gulf conflict, and if they can’t find them then they’ll consider conscription.  I’m newly on the dole, but I’m going to get off after Christmas – that’s where they’ll start selecting, I’m sure of it.
Today, I bought a limited edition 12-inch of ‘Doctor Jeep’ by THE SISTERS.
