#This could be us but you keep calling the police
Some people have been asking Laurie, my wife, about a new album I have coming out in November. Errhh? I don’t have an album coming out, they are probably confused. David Gilmour and Nick Mason have an album coming out. It’s called Endless River. David and Nick constitute the group Pink Floyd. I on the other hand, am not part of Pink Floyd. I left Pink Floyd in 1985, that’s 29 years ago. I had nothing to do with either of the Pink Floyd studio albums, Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell, nor the Pink Floyd tours of 1987 and 1994, and I have nothing to do with Endless River. Phew! This is not rocket science people, get a grip.
On another subject, my recent trip to Bruxelles was very moving. To listen to the testimony of some of those present in Gaza during the euphemistically named Operation Protective Edge, July and August 2014 was deeply disturbing. I am still non plussed by the acquiescence of the governments of the USA, UK and EU to the policies of the current Israeli administration. Should we encourage our leaders to sue for a peaceful solution or not? Here is a link to the findings of The Russell Tribunal on Palestine emergency session 2014:
Please study these findings and any rebuttals and then make up your own minds. Whatever you decide, let us all agree that, “To stand by silent and indifferent is the greatest sin of all.”
Rafah-born author and poet Khaled Juma wrote a heartbreaking tribute to the children of the Gaza Strip amidst the missiles striking his hometown. At least 506 Palestinian children have been killed since Israel commenced its latest invasion of Gaza on July 8, 2014

With all my heart I cannot respect people who drink and drive. Because it’s 100% preventable and fucking selfish
Jesus christ, watch the video, it’s heartbreaking…..their medical bills are OVER SIX MILLION DOLLARS. I can’t even imagine this…not doing anything wrong, just get hit by some piece of shit who was driving drunk and suddenly your entire life is ruined…dear god I can’t even imagine. This is horrifying and heartbreaking.
I never have respect people who drink and drive.
