Criminal Records


Odd my last for posts have been two sort of angry ones and two positive ones, The angry ones got double the hist of the positive ones, which I 'm sort of not too surprised about but wish it was the other way round. Not that I don't want people to read my blog, I definitely do , and am pondering whether I can hit a thousand posts and 100K page views by New Years Eve. It is unlikely that I can do both but the 1K posts is achievable as I have 180 days to do 100 posts, so 2 every three days from now til 2016.

It's Criminal
Ronnie Biggs came up in conversation and from that I started thinking of the association that the Great Train Robbery had with the Alabama 3 and Phil Collins and of course the Sex Pistols. I certainly can't condone robbery or what they did , but a mythology has grown up around them , giving them almost legendary status when in fact they brutally killed in their pursuit of money.  Ironically Western society more than ever prizes money over human life.

I was unsure of what song to use for this , but I will go with "No One Is Innocent" by The Sex Pistols featuring Ronnie Biggs , not sure if it was in The Great Rock and Roll Swindle.



Anyway a sort of disjointed post , but it's late and time for bed, hope you enjoy the read, spread the word and help me hit 100K. Thank you.

Here's a quote from Mr Biggs: (click for more)
