An Expensive Night

Pete trashes a nice painting:

PETE DOHERTY has been banned from LONDON's trendy GROUCHO CLUB after reportedly wrecking a piece of modern artwork thought to be worth around £100,000.

The former Libertines star was performing a charity gig with his band Babyshambles on Saturday (October 23) when he tore the metal sculpture from the ceiling and it disintegrated on the floor.

An onlooker told today's (October 25) Sun newspaper: "It's not a big room but Babyshambles launched into a very lively set. Pete was spinning round all over the place.

"Then he jumped into the crowd and grabbed the sculpture - it fell to the floor in pieces."

The club's bosses are reportedly furious over the incident and a source told The Sun: "Staff made it clear they never want to see him in their club again."

A spokesperson for the Groucho Club refused to comment on the incident.

Pete In The Socialist Worker:

There's few enough people doing things for the right reasons. Bringing people together to fight capitalism--I'm into that.

But I'm into learning as well. I need to know more of what it's about, and shape my own beliefs.

A lot of the issues surrounding Third World debt and loans to countries involves keeping things as they are, rather than completely dismantling a system a majority of people find horrific.

We need radical change. That's what I'm into and I think that's the only solution.
