    Well they are selling the park, that's some good pocketable money, it will be ripped apart and squeezed till there's nothing left and then sold off. That's what investment companies are all about now. Again this is all prediction I have no facts, but I would hedge my bets with this in mind.

    There you are! I knew I wasn't far of the mark when I introduced the spirit of Gordon Gekko into the scene. KA's sentiments in the above quote could be regarded as "dubious" to say the least but of course there was a period when British actors were in high demand in Hollywood to play all the villains, usually with a London cockney accent which is how we all speak in the U.K. So maybe that kind of villainy has spread from our actors to our businesses

    Come to think of it, the poor man with the gun who asked me if I could spare a few pounds did have a passing ressemblance to Alan Rickman or was it Vinnie Jones? Jack Palance eat your heart out

    Stone, Alan Rickman was the arch villain in one of the Die Hard films.The other bloke - now there's a real British word was the American hero( Willis? ) and now advertises Sky Broadband on British TV. So fair enough you make villains out of our British actors and we do the same with yours

    Vinnie Jones a former football player in the U.K. made or tried to make a name for himself in Hollywood. He obviously failed. I have to refer to him as a football player and dare not use the other U.S. word given Vinnie's tough guy reputation ( superb american phrase of tough guy used to maintain balance) and sensitivity to what he regards as a completely foreign word to describe the game with a round ball and goals that begins with "s"

    If none of the above has helped then you'll have to take it from me that there was a period and well within your living memory when in U.S. films Brit = Bad.

    We used to be stupid chimney sweeps with phoney cockney accents but that was in Dick Van Dyke's day( Tom, can you help here with a resume of Dick in case he too has sunk without trace?)

    Everybody knows who Dick van Dyke is. I think an education on Julie London is in order though. Wife of Bobby Troup (writer of Route 66).
    Here's Julie:
