  1. Film screening also at The Capitol, Horsham West Sussex, at the same time 7pm and includes live broadcast from Al Gore. I’m booked in. See you there.

    • Crikey is Al Gore still going? Another person that doesn’t practice what he preaches yet the weak minded are still sucked in.

      • When are you to release ‘The Truth according to GottaBeKidding’ (the movie)? It would be a hoot, even I’d go and see it. 😅

  2. Understand even the movie has proven to be a failure, according to viewing data. Gore’s that is.

    These “green” bottles keep falling off that wall. Must be the earthquakes!
