Film Review: Looking For Eric
ireland / britain | culture | review Thursday July 23, 2009 17:58 by Ciarán Ó Muireadhaigh - WSM - Workers Solidarity No 110 wsm_ireland at yahoo dot com
Born of a Catalan mother whose family fought Franco’s forces in the Spanish Civil War and a father who juggled a nursing career and a passionate interest in painting, Cantona’s humble lineage portrays a character quite different to the one we should have expected from the one on the field, with his upturned collar and puffed out chest, his air always suggested that of a French nobleman; that and his football eventually led to him to be known as King.

New Labour's plans to teach kids "traditional" values May 18 0 comments
You can always tell when a government is on its last legs: it starts going on about "traditional values." It makes sense though. A regime which has lost the respect of the people will complain that people no longer respect "traditional values" (i.e. authority). To suggest that there are uniform values for the 60 million inhabitants of a nation as diverse as Britain is as ridiculous as implying that these values set us apart from other people and nations
