    If I get my heath straightened out properly, one of the first things I'm gonna do is book a Rocky Horror show and get my slutty arse dressed up to the nines.

    Can't wait to show my legs off again

    If youre of a certain age - like me - you grew up with The Professionals. It was absolutely mint.

    I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism

    Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.

    Defo. I caught it on reruns early 80's, but instantly idolised Lewis Collins.

    I can't believe how well it's held up. Most episodes have terrific pacing, and I'd much sooner watch grounded stuff like that than all the OTT CGI shows now.

    The very first episode was on some channel the other day and they were all driving British Leyland cars. Cowley in an Austin Princess, Bodie in the Dolomite Sprint and Doyle in a TR7.

    If I remember, I read that BL were supposed to supply all the vehicles, but couldnt reliably bring enough (probably because they were all on strike).

    Ford stepped in instead, and the rest is history.

    Bodies Capri is iconic, and Doyle used to drive an Escort RS2000, which as anyone whos ever driven one will tell you, was absolutely bonkers.

    I couldn't afford an RS2000, so bought an XR3I. It had a weird speed limiter in it. Whenever you went over 70mph the dashboard would start rattling. I kind of missed that when I swapped it for a Toyota Supra. You didn't notice how fast you was travelling in it so a little rattle at 70 would have been very useful.

    I had an XR3i too, because yes, I couldnt afford an RS2000 (Mk1 or Mk2).

    However some years later, someone I knew rolled a Mk2 RS, wrecking the shell, and I bought the running gear from it off of him and fitted it into a Mk2 Escort van, which made a frankly astonishing Q car which went like stink, and looked from the outside just like a bog-standard Mk2 van.

    What can I say, I was young and stupid.

    Out of the chaos we divide
    Fucked up, muddled up, looking for a side
    Stay on the outside, don't go in
    Don't think that you can do it, if you sell out they win
    It's not like that the changes are made
    Give in to them, your chances are delayed
    You'll feed with your energies the things that you hate
    Diluting your strength each time they say yes

    Their hands are big, they've got big hands
    Big hands, big hands, big hands, big hands
    Big hands, big hands, big hands, big hands
    Big hands, big hands, big hands, big hands
    Big hands, big hands, big hands, big hands
    You're talking with sounds they don't understand
    Big hands, big hands, big hands, big hands
    They've got big mouths to shout demands
    Big hands, big hands, big hands, big hands
    They'll let you past a couple of times
    Big hands, big hands, big hands, big hands
    You think you're getting somewhere; you're fucking blind
    Big hands, big hands, big hands, big hands
    This structures stretches, it'll bend but not break
    Big hands, big hands, big hands, big hands
    This system channels any threat that you make
    Big hands, big hands, big hands, big hands
    Big hands, big hands, big hands, big hands
    Big hands, big hands, big hands, big hands
    Big hands, big hands, big hands, big hands
    Big hands, big hands, big hands, big hands
