Sunday 27 June 1999
RON DIXON - Resident Brookside entrepreneur. Compulsively addicted to seeking out implausible plot lines. Installed a dangerous gas cooker in his flat and blew up half of Liverpool in a Moment of Badness.
THE RONETTES - Sixties pop icons. Compulsively addicted to big hair, DayGlo lipstick, 50-part harmonies, dodgy pop lyrics and reverb. Recorded "Be My Baby" in a Moment of Sadness. .
SIR RONALD "RON" HAMPEL - Chairman of ICI. Compulsively addicted to safety, peace of mind, risk avoidance and huge salary cheques. Sold off much of ICI to complete strangers, leaving the tedious business of running a major industrial company to them, and thus experiencing a Moment of Gladness.
