Does anyone really want to know the truth anyway? Naaa...just 'chat' on the whole. Not being condescending...just honest...I live in the real world and deal with its consequences and by mentioning it was just confirming my point about just that....knowledge...is power...and can make most other comment......irrelevant tbf!x I'm gone...and luv ya Mate.......OGUUUURTS RUUUULE!x @@ ~ X

    P.S.....i've been at Grenfell...since day 2 of the fire. Helped organise the 11 separate factions/Community groups that surround the Tower to form 1 voice to confront and bring to justice those who did wrong. The 'truth' of that HORRIFIC situation has still not been aired or seen by 'the masses'. No talking in forums has come near it either. I have attended meetings at Westminster several times with victims.....and perhaps am the most knowledgeable person on the subject dealing with it on the front line and 'manage' the media meets and all whom you have seen on the telly...are my friends. I...am trusted....because I have 'done' for them. Delivered 15+ van loads of 'aid' too in the first weeks through my Courier firm collected from around the UK....and with the help of Nick Knowles found £20 Million+ to help build summink...so earned their respect. The fact i have attended most of the natural and man made disasters in the UK over the past 15 years or so...because I can...has given me the ability to be 'calm and collected and help co-ordinate' when all around are in shock...panic or distress...oh and others are in denounce mode to limit the Corporate and Political damage. I rise above it all...and indeed avoid getting bogged down in 'chat'. As I say...perhaps it is good that I just 'observe'...knowledge...is power...and action....can....invalidate others opinion...or indeed be irrelevant!x Incidentally....not every picture tells a story either!x Diane Abbott...just seconds before this pic...I grabbed her arm...pulled her to me...and said 'STOP MILKING THE FU**A FOR YOURSELF'...she replied unconvincingly...'Sooty I care...i ain't out for votes on this one or anything!!'...I pulled her closer and said...."BOLLOX...you don't know owt else." I let go...took the pic...she...is in shock...and her 'aid' spent the rest of the day shadowing me to make sure she stayed clear. Happy day indeed. The 2 Coppers are good friends...as was PC Keith Palmer of us all..the Man killed at Westminster defending us as his job...RIP. You aren't allowed to take pics in this part of Westminster...but they insisted. There....there is a story and truth for some...and another for others. Who does know what? I know this....the net...is for using...not...for talking...and i'm outta here!x Arghhh....left the Sky reporter pic in there too....I know EVERY face you all rely on for your news....and they do do..and say...as told/advised...i've figured!!!!x TRUST...!!!!x So what is the point in talking about....old news...often...supplied by those...you never see!!!!x I'm outta here....nice popping in tho'...and seeing/reading where it's at!!x @@ ~ X

    Miss you too Maslar....hahahahah!!!x Get ureself together Bruv....editing ure post away...now then!x You did say it....'why should folk stalk' in essence....?!x I 'stalked' the Russian mini fleet as it went through the Channel en route to Syria....never said a word to them...but learnt looooads!!!x Don't look for a 'response'...I never do...I just speak...put it 'out there'...end of. Yes if folk want to respond...i'll engage....but it is my thoughts i'm sharing....simple as. Not giving it laaarge...just being honest...but I started a thread 18 months ago in a football forum asking if anyone had been abused among our local 3 football clubs...Cambridge United...Cambridge City...and Histon. I have made 78 posts to it....10,400 'hits' later...and you know what.....NOT 1 POSTER has replied.....!!!!x I met Jonathan Northcroft of The Sunday Times and TV Punditry fame...oh and bestseller with the Leicester City book 2 weeks ago...for a nearly 3 hour chat. He was absolutely GOBSMACKED at the '1 way chat' I have going in there. I said why do you think that is? He said...because nobody knows better! CORRECT. I have met 7 other 'top journo's' as a consequence of that thread over the past 18 months....and they all said the same thing....which boosts my ability to answer Jonathan...yawn!!x I've helped 400+ victims/survivors over the past 15+ years...and have the audiences 'respect'...which equates to 'silence' or 'stalking'...whatever. I'm happy with that. I'm in the process of helping remove the entire English FA Board now too. Job being done....read it for yourself. Got them banged to rights...! The 'result' of that thread so far...?....Kit Carson...just been charged with offences going back 25 years for abusing Youths in football Academy's from Norwich...to Peterborough Utd to Cambridge Utd and beyond. There are 3 others too that are gonna be dealt with. The Bennell...Sampson and other situations were helped too as a consequence of my 'chat'. All done...1 way...as far as the Public perception is concerned. Same as was said that 'we' didn't do anything when the Russkies sailed passed us.....didn't we?!...ignorance is bliss....on occasion!x So...sometimes I find...'talking'...or typing'...isn't of use....but action...and reporting that action...is!x Different 'league' init!!x Good to hear from you anyway...and yes...we'd always get on....I reckon!x I could have left without answering....and you'd have been sad....but I can't do that....so answer you out of love....ok!!!x @@ ~ LUV SOOTY X Go to page 5/6...latest best bits!x Have ex friend Dan Ashworth (FA Chief) waiting now for the next bit about him....honest!!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!x

    Finally....before I go...and I don't frequent this or any other 'forums' anymore outside of FB...too busy in the real world...X However...I do get messages from friends I made in here over the years and certainly have missed many of your birthdays and the like!!x So..to make amends for that....here's my Baby Gurl now 2 Lexy....doing that for me...!x At 56....being a Dad again....well...can't recommend it tbf....BUT....LOVE IT...and her!x Have a Happy Day all!x @@ ~ LUV SOOTY X
  6. Morning all!x I am a positive guy and don't have time for sh*te...misery or Eastenders cr*p...as many know. However....we are all human...and fail on occasion. This is one of those moments I failed a friend...and feel bad...and so try to make amends by 'remembering him' to you all here...X Yes...i've had a horrible couple of weeks of late....excuses of sorts. I was due to go to France to join Media friends and Police pals for a Charlie hebdo reunion/memorial. Due to other dipsticks...I missed it...not happy. Then...10 days ago...a neighbour Sally...a year younger than me....I come out one morning...she does...I help her clear the snow off her car....she goes off with a smile. Next day...she's found dead...heart attack...WTF. I have to walk past her car each day still which hasn't moved.....I assure you I am every time I see it...sigh. Last Wednesday...Stephen Hawkin passed. He was a good friend....looked after him regularly over the past 15 years taking him from Cambridge to functions UK wide. He was funny...could be right sarcastic too...certainly type quicker than i could think on occasion...but most of all...'cool'...about everything. So...sad to see him pass of course...X An hour after finding out he had died....I get a call from my Siss...telling me my eldest Daughter had lost her first baby. FFS.....and being a 'new' Dad with a 2 year old...irrelevant of being a potential Granddad again...it hit me....hard. Then...the dipsticks who delayed my trip to France....took my time up for the rest of last week. The point is this....Stan The Man...I promised I would go see him in hospital last week en route to Scotland. it made him happy. BUT...b'cos of the stuff mentioned...I didn't. I didn't tell him I wasn't coming either and intended to do that this weekend....and go this week instead. But...I was informed yesterday by his Family...he had died last Wednesday too...same day as Stephen and my Daughters loss. WELL PI**ED OFF...as i'm sure you will understand. So...in my remorse...I made this quick tribute to him. Stan the Man...LUVLY fella...always smiling...dancing and no trouble to anyone. I looked forward to seeing him and indeed he made the trip to the Printworks doo to meet me specifically...and it was the last time we had a hug and quality time together. We did speak daily on FB...and he was joking to the end...even though he knew it was his end....and we...didn't. Shocked...surprised...and yes....sorry for not seeing him 1 last time. No excuses....even though I had some....bollo*...X Have a happy day all...I am off to try and do just that....X LUV SOOTY X

    Morning!x Besides crooning about Women or Men...most of the music 'we' endear to ourselves was done by many 'kids' who were Politically aware in their day. 1000's of tunes have a 'message'...so it seems sad to think we are thinking there is a 'divide' between such things and we shouldn't mix them in debate on a 'Soul' forum or be contemplating getting rid of such platforms within it. Our Souls are stirred by such things....i've made Political records as an activist to get a message across....sometimes better than a poll or the like!x Not surprisingly I do take issue with Maslar's observation that because folk don't participate then they shouldn't 'be there'. Personally...I do not take part in hundreds of topics I see in forums/FB and Social Media platforms.....but I appreciate reading others comment...and gathering knowledge on the subject for sure. In fact...knowledge is power as we all know...and if I did open my mouth because of my knowledge on occasion then it would shut others up...definitely!! So...silence...can be golden...and a favour...I reckon!x I saw this post and thought i'd add my twopence worth.....but as Admin will confirm i'm sure...I haven't frequented this site for months...and don't anymore. Nowt personal...but I am busy in the real world doing rather than talking. It's the same for many Forums i've left over the past 2/3 years...so have no clue as to what debate/argument/fall outs or owt have occurred. But...to defend 'freedom of speech' and the right to protest/comment....and indeed reply...is something I will gladly support wherever humans are...and I do...and say it now!x I have popped in to share a quick tribute to another departed Soul...ie. It's a 'guilt trip'...I was supposed to go see him last week...but put it off until this....and I was too late. F*** Williams and Watson....sigh. Northern...it's great...when things are great....but absolutely horrific....when we feel that way....c'est la vie...et mort....X So will do that and wish you all a happy day!x LUV SOOTY X Leave you with my baby Gurl Lexy....again....at 56....having a baby...does take ones priority.....!!!x Sheeesh!!hehe!x There they are Baaaabyyyy....and your take on Politics Lexy???>>>>

    Found this I made for the intended 'release' last Xmas...!!x The trailer came from a warped video which is all I had at the time!!!x It WILL be up in full for this one.....X Definitely outta here and will be back for Xmas....!x By the way Geeselad...Nick Knowles of SOS DIY fame LUVS his Northern too...!!x He came to me with £20 Million and 100 workers for the Grenfell folk...he knew i'd helped organise/co-ordinate the people surrounding Grenfell since day 2 and since his approach I have found the dosh/donations to match it from Global contacts. So it will be an ongoing telly project for the next few years....and I err.....imagine his luv for it will proliferate....a kind of assisted DIY....to save his Soul!!!x As I say above......priorities take me elsewhere....and Grenfell is me 'chillout'....honest....but I do miss you all....and I will leave Lexy to say it for me....she is my alpha and omega....and there is nothing left to say.....!x @@ ~ LUV SOOTY X p.s...the VHS copys are not for sale....!!x Kev Roberts sold out within 4 days I think I recall...all 750 copys back in 2003...!!x The film is going up for free for all...enjoy!X

    BRILLIANT....luvly to read folk are still respecting our roots with quality tunes!x I first heard Dance Dance Dance in my school youth club aged 14 mid 70's. Luv'd it....made me dance. When I made a decision to DJ on the Northern scene it was among the first 100 records I bought...from Robyn Gourlay...!x That was '93. By 94 I had a mint Roulette demo and was dead proud of it!x So...I get asked to DJ at the 100 Club Xmas Party '94/5 or it could have been '96....!....and I kick off with it after Butch....hell yeah. The place was LAUNCHED....and half a dozen late teens/moddy types came legging up to the decks after they had danced their ar*es of to it to ask WTF WOZ THAT???!!!x I....was overjoyed with its success that night....and I was 15 again....job done!!

    Thanx Patto and all...X I do miss popping in and can say the same for many other personal/chillout forums/websites featuring interests I have. In essence...I devoted myself to some National tragedy's in the past 2 years.....and a moral 'crusade' against some National outfits protecting peedo and other degenerate types of abuse. Politics plays a part too...and carries responsibility. I travel 2000 miles a week UK wide on average visiting 20 +_ Towns/Citys and Valleys......I luv it don't get me wrong...but I have to remain 'focused'!x I only see my new Baby Gurl Lexy once a week.........more than what I saw my first two 28 years ago!!! Some of that was down to the Northern scene back then....!....I digress!x Got it all in order....but ....it takes me chil;lout time up and leaves me little time to 'engage'....and I don't like to be ignorant.....the net is a two way thing....and I like to reply.

Today....25 years later.....we are now Granddads and Nannas.....and 1000's are heading out UK wide to revived...yet dignifiedish....Soul nights playing the generally unknown tunes by the populace!!!x In fact the scene has more supporters today than it ever has had......although the downside to that is the 'underground' element for which many of us had pride in...is now becoming 'commercial'...and songs that were 'commercial' are creeping in....and some are playing our prided records off CD's!!!x That....was never part of my scene since aged 14.....and pride myself on playing records to this day....whatever genre you want!!x I don't attend Soul doo's anymore other than National Charity events....love the music and always will....but if I want to have a 'party'......then i'd rather spin me other collection of classic 50's/60's/70's from all genres....for 7 hours at a wedding or summink and sling half a dozen well know Northern Soul songs in there!!!x I always went out on the scene to enjoy myself with good music and like minded folk....that ethos....remains!x Today....every day....hour...there are now telly ads featuring 'our' music in which the general populace had never heard before....yet we've been dancing to them since the 70's!!x Bob Geldof...and even Johnny Rotten all sold out eventually....init!!!x Here is a film that I made Janeene which explores our scene for folk like you who have no clue about it!!x 1.5 Million have watched it Globally in the past 2 years since I put it on line!
