Monkeys with Machineguns Press release for Bristol International Comics Expo 2009

April 26, 2009

PRESS RELEASE
For Immediate Release

MONKEYS WITH MACHINEGUNS OFFER A VISION OF THE FUTURE AT BRISTOL COMIC CON

Monkeys with Machineguns are producing an extremely limited number of promotional comic books to accompany the Monkeys with Machineguns Live event at the Small Press Expo in Bristol on May 9th.

While stocks last anyone buying a unique, one off illustrated short story from Chris and Stu will receive it mounted inside a copy of the limited edition twenty page book. Featuring not only an eight page preview of their upcoming book “The Magpye”, being published by Markosia, but also a full colour eight page preview of a brand new secret project, this is an opportunity for those taking part in Monkeys with Machineguns Live to own a small part of the future of comic book history.

For those not in the know, the Magpye is a “supernatural superhero psychological horror story”, a genre-bending tale of an amnesiac vigilante charged with defending mankind from monsters, creatures, and things that lurk in the dark whilst being haunted, and sometimes hounded, by the ghosts of his fallen predecessors. When the Magpye’s identity is finally revealed however, he may have to face the worst monster of all … himself.

As for the secret project … the details of that will be revealed at the show!

And keep a close eye on the day as the Butcher may well be appearing in comic format

Labour the party of broken promises

April 25, 2009

Despite numerous promises and prominent European leaders stating that the treaty that Gormless Gordon and his chums have signed us up to being essentially the same as what Gormless promised us a referendum on I thought I would contact my MP. Mr Chris Bryant, below is my letter and below that his reply. The sooner this morally inept bunch are out of power the better.

Dear Chris Bryant,

As My Mp I would like to know your stance on the failed promise of the
Labour Government to give the people of the United Kingdom a referendum
on Europe. I wonder on your stance when Labour MP Alice Mahon stated
that part of the reason for her resignation was the governments failure
to live up to it’s promise under the election manifesto.

As I remember all major parties agreed that they would hold a
referendum on something so momentous for everyone in Britain yet we are
refused access to this.

I would also like to point out that as people are getting more and more
frustrated by the Labour establishments failure to deliver on it’s
promises that this may well be a deciding factor in upcoming elections.

The Government keeps telling us that this is nothing like the EU
constitution but other European Leaders have said that this is so. Why
is the Labour party so afraid of giving it’s electorate the chance to
make it’s own mind up

I eagerly await your reply.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Griffiths.

Dear Richard
I’m afraid I disagree with you – and I do not believe we should be
having a referendum, a point I have made for several years now.  I do
not believe that referendums are a proper way of consulting the public
as they undermine the democratic parliamentary process. I know it seems
like nit-picking but our commitment was to a referendum on the
Constitutional Treaty.  This was rejected by two countries and is
therefore no longer being considered.  The rather different Lisbon
Treaty is now before us and I think it is a good deal for Britain.  We
never held referendums on the Maastricht, Amsterdam or Nice Treaties and
I think one would be inappropriate now.
I am sorry to disappoint you yet further.
Yours truly, Chris

Britains Shame

April 25, 2009

Speak to any either serving or former soldier and ask what a Gurkha is.

“They are the epitiome of honour and courage, men who are willing to lay down their lives for their comrades and too often for a country not their own”

Well the Labour government brought shame once again to Britain yesterday with the despicable ruling on the Gurkha’s. At a time when so many migrants that come here come here just for the benefits that they get so easily, we turn our back on men that have fought and been wounded in service to this country.

Any man who pulls on this countrys uniform should be entitled if they so wish to call themselves British. I have always been proud of my country until now.
