nixon night: 8th june
I'm afraid this one speaks for itself: as part of the continuing wave of frenetic passion that is the Smyth 2010 campaign is having a little bit of a night of celebration, before our man with the plan heads off for a month touring the USA's eastern seaboard.
Mr Smyth has many unfortunate heroes, and none are more controversial than Tricky Dick himself, the 37th President of those same United States. If you've ever been in at 'Campaign HQ' for more than five minutes and heard myself and the candidate going at it, you'll know that the bizarre humour often revolves around former incumbents of the White House, and R. Milhous Nixon is certainly one of the most popular. To that end, we have resolved to put on the not-exactly-impartial epic that is Oliver Stone's 'Nixon' starring everyone's favourite repatriated Welshman, Anthony Hopkins as the man himself.
I'm not going to say it's open invitation because our living room isn't that big, and our audio system in particular could do with an overhaul; but nonetheless, if you also would enjoy three hours of non-stop Nixon action, drop us a line and we'll see about getting you in past the Secret Service...
