I must get a copy of this. From the video above, it looks excellent.  :)

A neat idea though sadly my art skills are nothing to marvel at!  :)

Indeed, time brings many changes and waits for no man. Still, it would be entertaining to read Old Ian's thoughts on modern Britain in the years since his death in 1964. It would make for blistering reading, I'm sure. I think he would have been in favour of Brexit, though.

We are not a politics place - there are plenty of other fora for that - we are first and foremost a Bond place, so consequently our focus isn't on politics and we generally avoid the less savoury side of things, i.e. anything that would threaten to unduly influence the political process in budding young democracies is strictly off limits. From what I gather on the waterholes there is some kind of election-thingy or other going on this year that we will ignore, mainly because

a ) it's none of our business and
[b]b ) at least one person involved would not be fit to be a member of CBn.p/b]

Raises the interesting question how many Bond alumni would not be fit to be a member on CBn. Imagine Kingsley Amis and his Bond fan pal Philip Larkin - if they were still alive - on these fora. Amis when he got to drinking - which was most of the time - could be quite a handful. And as for Larkin, well read this article-

-in particular the poem

Prison for strikers,
Bring back the cat,
Kick out the n******,
How about that?

Lazenby is another one who might get into the occasional tiff that requires moderator intervention and cautions.

 

 

In that case I think even Ian Fleming himself ironically might have had some problems had he been a member of CBn.
