And beware the big bad wolf.

I kept going 'ew' but I still had to watch it to the end.

I think the tug toner is scarier.

And Alexander Vasudevan rears his head in the 'Guardian' once more:

"...squatters have assembled (often quite literally) a genuine alternative to a failed pro-market model of housing driven by profiteering and speculation."

In the same way burglars have 'assembled a genuine alternative' to buying stuff with their own money, I guess?

David (and Julia),

"Your alternative lifestyle comes out of somebody else's pocket."

I miss the Rockford Files...

“Your alternative lifestyle comes out of somebody else’s pocket.”

I haven’t seen The Rockford Files since I was a gangly teenager and can’t recall specific episodes, but I feel a residual warmth towards it. May have to search it out as comfort TV.

JuliaM

I remember the theme music, it was great!

@JuliaM,
MYself and Mark W would disagree with both the squatters and the (anti-capitalist) mainstream home-onwnerists.

re: A YOUNG BOY IN GHANA

I went to a Reduced Shakespeare Company performance many years ago. A strange bald chap - looking very similar to an occasional character in the X-Files* - played the 1812 overture finale** on his throat in just such a manner.

Freaked me out, but I was quite glad not to be brought on stage for public humiliation as was the fate of some hapless audience members


* no I don't mean the eponymous Skinner, I mean him

** could have been the tune from the William Tell overture, actually
