‘King Mob: A critical hidden history’ by David Wise
Picked this up in Housmans yesterday and a very entertaining read it is. Dave Wise has a lot to get off his chest about the appropriators and recuperators of King Mob and does it in a surprisingly gossipy and vulnerable way.
the book starts with a paean of lost love to a woman from Grimsby which assures you this is going to be the real thing not some cobbled together job. ‘The intensity I felt towards her convulsively increased’. Indeed its such moments that prove far more interesting than the famous incidents such as the Selfridges xmas give-away. Though the story of the pantomime horse in the Powis Square riot is worth the £6.99 alone.
The first lines from Dave Wise read …’Always, always on my mind in some kind of way, a push was needed to get it kick started’ Same here mate. It’s a shame our paths never crossed because the Wise brothers were two proletarians in the midst of a sea of public schoolboys.. .and remain a couple of jobbing builders from the North east. I said some ignorant things on my blog about them a couple of years back and much regret that now.
Brand has refused to change platform guests for days/ then says meeting cancelled till ‘we find out what’s going on/ then cancels all speakers/ then replaces with yoga session…………..if it had not been for Peter Tatchell being honest and honourable as usual Brand would have been quite happy to proceed with his right wing chum……….
RUSSELL BRAND HALTS THE REVOLUTION TILL ‘WE FIND OUT WHAT’S GOING ON’…….always a problem for the leadership Russell.
Hoxton gig cancelled tonight after anti-fascists expose Brand buddy and platform speaker Laurence Easeman and Peter Tatchell threatens to withdraw. Never mind Russell nice easy day tomorrow with the ‘new Orwell’ Owen Jones…………
