"If only all subversives were like him." (NME)
"He's a man with a passionate desire to communicate his ideas, who is also very funny." (The Guardian)
I first became aware of Mark's work from his C4 shows, and to this day I try to never let an opportunity to hear his stuff pass by.
His ability to point out the ludicrous / unjust / bordering illegal / just plain selfish actions of so many of today's 'big corporations' (both business & government) has yet to be surpassed, and each time I hear him I am left wondering 'Why aren't I taking action like him?' so thought provoking are his words & deeds
Oh, and he's very very funny as well, so that helps.
"...and earlier on today, we just found out, we f**king WON...!
Ah, yes - 'won'... For those amongst, if you're on the Left.... 'Won'.... I realise that you may not be quite familiar with this phenomenon, or maybe perhaps you remember once experiencing this feeling, long, long ago...."
If the last 10 mins of the struggles of the Kurdish Dambusters and their stories, as narrated and recounted by Mark Thomas does not make you weep, then you might want to check your soul is still in one piece and attached to your eyelids, because otherwise it's likely to be either seriously defective, or it has come loose in transit somewhere along the way and slipped away completely.
A heroic real life moral fable for these dark days living under the Wars of Terror.
