message for President Cambridge University Boat Club

One day strike 
All you need in Ely is rackspace for minimal squads
All land training in Cambridge
Great Ouse in Ely is for rowing mileage
This action will generate dynamic publicity in battle to beat Oxford
I am committed to stopping this eco-destructive attempt to build complex and car park on highly flood-prone site.
Wrong side if the dyke!
Exteme rain coming. Sea levels rising!

But my main point is that in terms of winning Boatrace it is wrong-headed.

By email to President CUBC

Earl Scruggs anti Vietnam War action

From Wikepedia:

On November 15, 1969, Scruggs played his Grammy-winning “Foggy Mountain Breakdown” on an open-air stage in Washington, D.C., at the Moratorium to End the War in Vietnam, becoming one of the very few bluegrass or country-western artists to give support to the anti-war movement.[8] In an interview after his performance, Scruggs said:[9]

I think the people in the South is just as concerned as the people that’s walkin’ the streets here today … I’m sincere about bringing our boys back home. I’m disgusted and in sorrow about the boys we’ve lost over there. And if I could see a good reason to continue, I wouldn’t be here today.

Keef on BBC Radio 4 Front Row yesterday

Banjo Nick

Keef on Radio 4 now! : ‘It is marginally easier to rock than to roll’…brilliantly self-aware interview from Mr Riff promoting his very stripped down solo album. On songwriting: ‘songs are floating through this room if you can pick them up’…paraphrasing. Great praise for Charlie Watts. Very guarded on Third World War with Mick Jagger in 1980s…but claims that 99 per cent of the time they are locked together like brothers. His ritual words to Water Rat Ronnie as they go onstage to ‘levitate’ before 60,000 people: ‘Come on old boy, let’s get a couple of hours of peace and quiet!’. Humble about his uniquely syncopated guitar sound: ‘One day I’ll get the hang of it’ (smoker’s laugh). Utterly charming and as sharp as ever after 50 years of enriching us with his dazzling talent. Claims there is no physical problem with performing…less exhausting than 30 years ago as junkie…no plans to retire. Long live Keef!
