Kicking in chairs and knocking down tables

So goes part of the opening "rap" from "West End Girls" From the Pet Shop Boys...

and this is certainly what seems to be happening here but the juxtaposed comparison doesn't end there.. 

Here we go with some more of the "rap" with the pictures, so you can see how well they fit (or otherwise)... (bare in mind the scene below is taking place in the restaurant / cafe)

Sometimes you're better off dead


There's a gun in your hand and it's pointing at your head


You think you're mad, too unstable

kicking in chairs and knocking down tables

in a restaurant in a West End town
Call the police! There's a madman around

And if that was not enough the song goes on to add...

Too many shadows, whispering voices


Did Neil and Chris (That's the Pet Shop Boys) watch 'Outland" or was this just a polemic on the West End of London?


That aside here's all the drawing together and i have to say O'Neil's face says it all, Jim really hit the bullseye on this one.. 




So thats one assassin taken down in the canteen, tomorrow we move onto the Greenhouse, yes  there really is a greenhouse! - will I invoke Silent Running, or some lyrics from a Tom Jones song? There's only one way to find out...


oh yeah "West End Girls" is copyright Christopher Sean Lowe;Neil Francis Tennant
