This made me laugh. I have snipped this from the current Wikipedia entry on Michael Gove, MP for Surrey Heath (my patch).

BNP membership amongst teachers
As Education Secretary Gove has stated that schools should have the power to dismiss teachers for being members of the British National Party (BNP). He told the Guardian: "I don't believe that membership of the BNP is compatible with being a teacher. One of the things I plan to do is to allow headteachers and governing bodies the powers and confidence to be able to dismiss teachers engaging in extremist activity".

Not an extremist position, then.

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfil it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”

“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”
― Dr. Seuss

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
― Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to You!

Albert had it going on. Mother Teresa had seen it all. Dr. Seuss was nuts.
This evening a friend reminded me about a band from the Eighties that I had utterly forgotten about. Here's an unashamedly Eighties-look video for the song "The Motive" by British pop band Then Jerico from back-in-1987.

I'm reliably informed that the band are still playing and are playing gigs this year. Like it.

Despite not being a Floydy, I do love the way David Gilmore can make his guitar sing. And this song contains one of the most compelling rock guitar solo sequences ever.
