"Full Throttle" Sir henry "Tim " Birkin

Soon after "memento Mori" comes another Gem of a Play - it was part of a series on , i think BBC 2 Called "Heroes & Villains" it features Colonel Wintle and Hester Stanhope - i don;t recall the other episodes as i think they were only shown a couple of times BUT now they can be found on U - Tube which is a Joy

Sir Henry is Played by Rowan Atkinson - someone who knows how to drive a fast car !

Many years ago a friend of mine arranged for us to go and Visit Frank Lockhart at Aston Clinton - Frank had inherited his Brother's Racing Bentley and Frank took me out :

"For a Spin"

We raced sown the then almost empty Bypass at well over 100 Miles per hour ! it was frightening and Exhilarating at the same time - few things are as enjoyable as speed and in recent times i've done more or less the same thing on the Oxford Ringroad in my Mistresses Sports Car !

Do watch this - it's most enjoyable

Corruption in the CLPGS :
The Seven Social Sins are:
Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character .Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Worship without sacrifice. Politics without principle.

Money. Greed. Naivety. Falsehoods. Exploitation. Welcome to the wonderful world of gramophones!
