the enlightened MP, storyteller, explorer and
dictator, who has died aged 62, won the heart of
the nation with his wonderful use of word play
and life defining speeches. In the three decades

for himself in the shipyards of Govan. Here,
after almost being killed by a stray horse, he
swung a workers revolt in the favour of the
employers and found himself on the dole. This
lead to the unfortunate Knightswood
Incident and the ramifications of that were
far and wide. Blame was never laid at the feet of
the young God, far from it, but the deaths in the
fires of Yokerhill would remain a talking point

swiftly changed through propaganda to a tactical
retreat) attempt to explore the lower basin of

Knightswood West in controversial circumstances,

to annoy the hell out of surrounding countries,
proclaiming Britain forever more the head of the
Empire of Europe. The European Civil War followed,

but more questions. Murder has not been ruled out.
But Winston God, the most influential man of all
of our lifetimes, has died in his civil cell in
Rennes. He is survived by his son, Winston Again,
who carries the name of God into new, unchartered
dictator, MP and storyteller, born March 22nd
1945, died April 16th 2007.

Winston God is available in hardback from all

are also looking for a more loyal obituary writer
for subsequent issues.)
