It's that time of year again, people.
Anarcho-Stalinist-Wobbly-Zapatista surfer dudes have the Christmas number 1, and Manchester Branch have once again issued details of the quiz from their end of year Branch social.
It's the usual routine on the blog. I reproduce the quiz questions below. I place my own pisspoor answers in the comment box. Not ONE of my seven readers join in the spirit of the season by trying to supply their own answers and I then post the correct answers in the comments box at a later date.
. . . .Oh, and I once again use a variation on the same post title that I always use for the Manchester Branch end of year quizzes because I can't think of any wittier alternatives.
Your starter for ten:
1. 'On a summer day in the month of May a burly bum came hiking/ Down a shady lane through the sugar cane, he was looking for his liking./As he roamed along he sang a song of the land of milk and honey/ Where a bum can stay for many a day, and he won't need any money.'
2. What is the subtitle or alternative title of News from Nowhere?
3. In 1907, why did the Party pay £2 to Richard Bell, secretary of the Amalgmated Society of Railway Servants?
4. What happened in Derbyshire on 24 April 1932?
5. Which Party member was known as 'Two Shirt'?
6. Which footballer refused to give a Nazi salute when England played Germany in Berlin in May 1938?
7. Which year were the big Party meetings at the Metropolitan Theatre?
8. Who were the four people who threw Engels' ashes into the sea?
9. Who was Ishi?
10. Where do Blackburn Rovers play?
