George W. Bush is coming to the UK... and we'll be waiting for him.

  We DO need some compensation.
Former schoolchildren who sang on Pink Floyd's 1979 single Another Brick in The Wall have begun action for unpaid royalties.
Royalties expert Peter Rowan said he was appealing on behalf of one former pupil and was working with others.


Fair play says I. According to this site Pink Floyd The Wall (the album) has sold 23 million copies.

Thankfully for poons calculating brain there are 23 pupils claiming. If they were to claim a derisory 10 shiny new pence per copy they would each receive £100,000 in crisp £50 notes. Not bad for an afternoon skiving off school, and that doesn't take into account single sales (we don't need no education), the film takings and subsequent video and DVD royalties and finally live performances (if they used a backing tape - dunno on this never seen them live). I'd be holding out for a quarter of a million each if I were one of them.

Update: Just e-mailed this

I'd love to know what each of the 23 are now upto.
Did they get any GCSE's or O'Levels.
Did or Do they need their education?
And are they allowed pudding, even when they've not eaten their meat?

I think it would make a great read.

I will be posting this e-mail to my blog
If you run with it; all I ask is a link to me in the article and a subscription to The Mirror (for life)and a subscription to The Daily Mail (One year - to be sent to a person I don't like to be decided at a later date)
