Posted by mike_halliday (mike_halliday), 13 March 2004

if you were having a dinner party and you could invite 5 people( Living or dead, fact or fiction) who would you invite?

mine would be:
james Cagney
Richard branson
My Grandad
Mr Bean
Michael Winner.

its harder than you think Wink

Yes, it is surprisingly hard.

I would have:

Joanna Lumley † † †(love that voice)
David Belamy † † † †(never mind the voice)
Prof. Robert Winston
John Cleese
My younger daughter (who would stop conversation getting too heavy)

Hi Mike

Mine would be

Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac) in the words of 10cc Iím in love
Todd Carty (East enders what a gent)
Mother in law
Richard Branson
The Cook (wife)

Sham you didnít extend it to six or seven one of them would have been you.

Barry not being a football person which British club won the UEFA Cup?  No joke; if itís Arsenal or Man U I donít want a reply, as I have to listen to my wife and brother-in-law every Sunday lunchtime in the working mans club, if itís another that would make my day.

Hi Mike,

You're right it's not easy but here goes:-

Alan Whicker
Rachel De Thame (ask my wife  Wink )
Chris Beardshaw (the BBC flying gardener - if a ****** gardener can get to fly round in a helicopter and get paid for it he can tell the secret to operating the first Helicopter Mount in the UK    Grin Grin )
John Brown ( deceased leader of the labour party - I wouldn't  say I particularly support labours views but that chap had real charisma - I reckon he would have been a damm good PM).
MY WIFE - if Rachel's coming there's no way my wife will let me out without a chaperone!!!!

After much thought, I'd like to make the evenings conversation as interesting and heated as possible. So I'd have:

Bernard Manning
Naomi Campbell
Enoch Powell
Claire Short
Bob Geldof

Just light the touch paper and take a few steps back Roll Eyes

Safe and happy eating cleaning Smiley

Mr Bean would be a good one as when I had a shop he and his mate Steve Fry turned up on Christmas as customers and had the place in stiches.

I would also have to invite Tony Blair Chere and Carol as Ive been round their place for drinks.

Whoops thats five and I have not got to Paul McCartney and Nicol Kidman

The Buddha
Guru Nanak

I reckon they would get along very well, unlike some of their followers.
