This one claims that the Liberal Democrat candidate for Sparkbrook and Small Heath, Talib Hussain, is a 'Bond star.'
That faint snapping sound you just heard was reality being stretched that little bit too far. Here's Cllr Hussain's full movie career, according to the Internet Movie Database:
Mind you, he only makes a cameo appearance in his leaflet. Charlie Kennedy's grinning face leers out at me on no less than seven occasions, with Tony Blair, George Bush and Talib Hussain making one appearance each. One of those people is a candidate in Birmingham - I'm not sure which.
It did get me wondering, though. Is John Hemming really some kind of Blofeld character? Is the plan for a Birmingham underground system just a cunning distraction from his real plans? An undercover camera took this picture in Yardley yesterday at the Coventry Road office...
The truth is out there. As, possibly, am I.
