"Do you know where the idea for the 40th anniversary of Punk London came from? A tourist board meeting, the idea was offered up at a brainstorming session in the board room at the Department of Cultural Tourism of the Greater London Authority and the office of the Mayor of London [Boris Johnson, Public Anus and ex Etonian and member of the Bullingdon Club, a club for the filthy filthy filthy rich whose initiation includes burning £50 notes in front of the homeless and whose sole arrogant purpose is to go to restaurants and literally smash them to shit then charge all the damage to Papa]. We investigated, and finally spoke to the decision maker, Mike Clewley, head of said department told us that as there was no royal wedding this year there was a problem, what could be used as a tourist feature, what could be flogged to tourists this year. Hmmmmmmm! Someone grabbed an almanac, noticed it was 40 years since the Pistols released 'Anarchy in the UK' and Hey Presto! (Burn Punk London - Open Letter to Henry Rollins)
