The Irish did a great job using ex pats to get the story out of how they turned the country around. Why cant the idiots running the Capital of Culture use the same philosophy and get ex pat scousers from around the world back in 2008 rather than count on plastic scousers such as Tarby,Cilla etc and the old chestnut of Macca.

I was going to work on this fella

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000850/

to come back for a look as I can speak to him him through a mutual friend but I wouldnt know what to suggest for him as the arrangements/events for 2008 seem as top secret as the tall buildings policy.

Others such as Hallie Berry and Mike Myers have some ties to the city and surely this is a prime excuse to try and get them here even if only so we can oggle at Hallie.

Thoughts/suggestions?

I would have posted on the COC thread but I cant find it.

Wow theres a word you dont use every day

I think theres truth in both the above replies

1) The people inolved lack the imagination
2) They dismiss it because they didnt think of it

I contacted the Liverpool film office a while back about some contacts I had obatined in the fillum business here in LA and they just blew me off.

The 'scouser' expat boards are VERY active and I find it hard to believe all of them are anti Liverpool.

I havent been following it too much as I am half a world away but is this one idea of an activity the 21st Century Group could take on ? Just a thought as although I understand the group is still figuring out it aims etc you will need practical actvities to move it forward.
