The Song of the Pioneers

The people’s flag is brightest red - it helps us earn our daily bread
Though skinflints mock and Tories jeer - the licence fee’s not really dear
The licence fee! The licence fee!
It pays the bills for you and me!
From single mums in Bethnal Green - for expense accounts and limousines

If they don’t pay the licence fee - it’s jail and chuck away the key
For posh school fees and winter sports - we need to add a few more naughts
Our pensions are inflation free - all paid for by the licence fee
The licence fee! The licence fee!
Don’t take away our licence fee!
A hundred and thirty odd quid a year - will keep the red flag flying here!

Lefty Beeboid Family Snap

Just in time for Christmas - BBC Pioneer Productions is introducing the ultimate family card game:-

Lefty Beeboid Family Snap

An exciting combination of Happy Families and Snap with BBC celebrity families and political intrigue
- promising to be the most mind numbing Christmas game since Trivial Pursuit.

We'll be introducing new "cut out and keep" card families on a weekly basis between now and Christmas - all you have to do is print 'em out, cut 'em out and drink enough to blank 'em out.

The rules (optional):-

Deal cards equally between players
Each player turns over their top card
The player with the most rabidly left wing character starts
Players lay down a card in turn
When ever a card with the same character as the previous card appears
-the first player to call "LEFTY" collects both cards
The first player to collect an entire family and lay the cards down with a call of "BEEBOIDS" wins

NOTE - almost of the cards are various shades of pink but there is a very slight possibility that there may be one or two BLUE cards in a pack.

Should a blue card be played - the rest of the players will shout "TORY, TORY, TORY - OUT, OUT, OUT and play will cease until at least next Christmas

Here's this week's Happy Lefty Beeby Family - The Marrs

Stay tuned for more Lefty Beeboid Families soon!
