When our children's, children's, children dust of the books off the past and thumb through the pages of history they will remember this day as being the day when they heard that S CLUB 7 are reforming!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, the magnificent seven who brought joy to so many with hits like Reach (for your arse) and S Club Party have decided to get back together again (well three of the least successful in the band) according to The Scum:
Also in the news...In the words of that other S Club song BRING IT ALL BLACK!!!!!!!!!!
BARACK OBAMA IS THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT OF AMERICA
Never thought i would be writing that to be honest....45 years after Martin Luther King gave his "I have a dream speech" it seems that the sentiments of his original hopes have been fulfilled. It's amazing to think that less than fifty years ago Blacks and minorities weren't even allowed to enter college, sit where they wanted on a bus, drink from the same water cooler, swim in the same beach or even walk down the same street. I am usually the cynical type, but this Election win sends out a message that a stand-up comedian from Texas with a cabbage for a brain brought that country to it's knees and it wants to be respected not laughed at. People who would never have voted took to the streets in huge numbers and probably feel as thought they might finally have a voice. Well this is just the start. Wow, it's almost as exciting as the Irish Presidential election...I think ours should at least involve an obstacle course and a go-kart race or even a Father Ted style lovely girls competition instead of a simple hand shake test..."Yes, I can confirm Mary MacAleese has the best handshake amongst all the candidates and is the next President of Ireland".
Ill leave you with this quote from Martin Luther King from Letter from a Birmingham Jail one of the most perceptive and brilliant things i've read :
"We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed. For years now I have heard the word "Wait!" It rings in the ear of every Negro with piercing familiarity. This "Wait" has almost always meant 'Never'. We must come to see, with one of our distinguished jurists, that "justice too long delayed is justice denied.Let us all hope that the dark clouds of racial prejudice will soon pass away and the deep fog of misunderstanding will be lifted from our fear-drenched communities, and in some not too distant tomorrow the radiant stars of love and brotherhood will shine over our great nation with all their scintillating beauty. "
