Well done on the song lyrics, but there is absolutely zero evidence that a supermarket on Hibbert Lane would sound the death knell of the town centre in favour of more big chains.

In fact when you look at the likes of Glossop, Whaley, Buxton etc you could come the conclusion that the opposite outcome would come about.

Despite the fact that I don't believe a word of it, I must admit Carl's rewrite of Billy Bragg is absolutely brilliant!   :)

Mum of two that's not nice and not really acceptable, because the lyrics Carl has put together are for MIA and supporters of the NO campaign who will agree I am sure that the words are very meaningful if CAMSFC continue with their proposals.  I have asked for this to be put on the site and Carl has agreed so please show some respect to someone who is assisting and supporting the NO campaign.
i applauded carl for taking the time to do write it....but mac d's and kfc? I dont think so. I know hes only putting a view of what he 'thinks' will happen......but i just dont think marple will suffer as badly as you all think
That's your view that Marple will not suffer and Carl has an alternative view in which he feels it will !
well we all have different views....nobody will know for sure until the supermarket does come....
im not going to get into a debate about it, i know my views, nobody will change it.

Brilliant!

"Build me a town from cradle to grave".....what a nightmare vision from hell to leave for future generations.

Let's hope it's a utube hit to get the message across  !

Carl was impressed to learn that I went to school with Billy Bragg and I'm mentioned in his biography. I've asked him (Carl) to see if he can record it for posting to Youtube and look forward to hearing how it sounds.

Between The Wars
Music – Billy Bragg   Words – Carl Cieka © 2011


Mark was a landlord
John was a butcher
Dan owned the Toast Café down Derby Way
There was a Pink Parrot but they held a big carrot
To bribe all the Governors to get their own way
 There was a bakers too, Toymaster and a loo
Florist and fishmonger all swept aside
They knocked down the college door
To build a mega-store
We’re fighting for our small town
Between the wars


I went to the swimming pool
They laughed and said “You fool”
“Stockport Road is now a dual carriage way”
Where once was a surgery now there’s a KFC
And Little Chef provides breakfast, dinner and tea
There was a health food shop
Hollins to buy a mop
Buckets and spades are now down aisle 93
Where once stood The Golden Plate
And The Icing On The Cake
Now stands a McDonalds and a Costa Coffee


So call out the craftsman
Bring me the draughtsman
Build me a town for cradle to grave
And I’ll give my consent to any Government
That stands by its people against the corporate way
Go find the young men arm them with sword and pen
Unfurl the banners and we’ll march side by side
We’ll dance on the college floor
Now hear our voices roar
The people of Marple say NO to your mega-store
.  Wow.....
Shame not all the people say no.
And where did they get the idea of a mac d's? Genious!!
Unfortunatly sarcasm doesnt come accross in writing...

A local resident has sent us new lyrics to the tune of Billy Brags Between the Wars.  I think the new lyrics are fantastic and gives a concerning picture of what Marple maybe come if CAMSFC continues with their ridiculas proposals.  
As I have mentioned before I am IT illiterate and could possibly now cut and paste but could not take out personal details off the email as I have become very lazy using an iPad  >:(   Can someone help ?
