    Thanks Craig. He is adorable.

    I knew you were not talking about the Old Etonian.

    Cute, but I’m an occasional music teacher and I’m fascist about these things. The kid is clearly engaged and focussed, and that means that things can be done. Mmmwaaahhh! Get him off to music lessons. Actual music, not rock – he can relegate himself to shite later if he wants (pays big, same as any lottery).

    It’s scary to think, but the train is already leaving the station: act right now, find a teacher right now. Are you still there? Move!!

    I’m impressed that the adults recording this didn’t interrupt.

    Compare it with families that compulsively applaud, gurgle, and coo; pre-empting the enthusiasm, intruding in the child’s spontaneity, and crippling them with self conciousness.

  • IAN CAMERON

    He’s a bit high. May I recommend a sojourn in The Priory to chill out? Next he’ll be up on that Beatles Rooftop behind the Burlington Arcade and the local fuzz will be absolutely pole axed.

    I was at a political talk today and it opened with small group of young kids singing a couple of songs on the stage. You could guess that they viewed this performance was important and it wasn’t hard to imagine all the practice sessions they did. They did well and doubtless the teacher was enormously proud of them.

    My point is, that their innocence, like Cameron’s, made my eyes fill with water as they are so beautiful, but there’s a savage world out there (of out making) which they will have to grow up in. I felt great pity of these kids, whose adorable innocence ans sweetness ripped away from them, thrust in this this world which has seen probably 200m people killed for political reasons in the last 100 years alone and can now achieve ten times that in less than 2 hours.

    Lwtc247 I completely agree with your sentiments and always say that ‘No child shall be harmed’.

    PS I thought that 4 year old Cameron is showing advanced language skills for his age and is a happy little chap.

    Mary, nothing wrong with Eton – quite a good school by all accounts. Oxford is where things seem to go wrong, PPE now producing Conservative politicians with an infatuation for gay marriage.

    3 years wow – what a kid!

    ‘caught the Russian entry to Eurovision on the tv – its an explicit pro peace anthem, not too cheesy, hope it wins!

    Dina Garipova, What if… Eurovision 2013 Russia

    What if I could change the path of time
    What if I had the power to decide
    What if I could make us unify
    (If I, If I)

    What if we would open up the doors
    What if we could help each other more
    What if i could make you all believe
    (If we, If we)

    Chorus:
    What if we all Opened our arms
    What if we Came together as one
    What if we aimed to stop the alarms
    What if we chose to, bury our guns

    Why don’t we always
    Reach out to those
    Who need us the most

    Together we can change the path of time
    Together we have power to decide
    The answer lies within our hearts and minds
    (Together, Together)

    Together we can make a better place
    On this little island out in space
    Together we can change the world forever

    Chorus
    What if we…

    Let’s unite and make a change!
    Let’s unite and write a new page!
    Come on sinners come on saints!
    Have faith

    Why don’t we always
    Reach out to those..

    Chorus..

    Im loved up, i think its brilliant!

    Britain voted the Russian Peace anthem second, and Denmarks song first -which was also a Peace song just slightly less explicit.

    Ireland choose the same top 2 – we are peas in a pod. Hurry up Scotland and dump the WasteMonster that keeps us down.

    Denmark won! This is a good omen -excellent Lyrics:

    The sky is red tonight
    we’re on the edge tonight
    no shooting star to guide us

    Eye for an eye
    why tear each other apart
    please tell me why
    why do we make it so hard
    look at us now
    we only got ourselves to blame
    it’s such a shame

    How many times can we win and lose
    how many times can we break the rules
    between us
    only teardrops
    How many times do we have to fight
    how many times till we get it right
    between us
    only teardrops

    So come and face me now
    here on the stage tonight
    let’s leave the past behind us

    Eye for an eye
    why tear each other apart
    please tell me why
    why do we make it so hard
    look at us now
    we only got ourselves to blame
    it’s such a shame – tell me

    How many times can we win and lose
    how many times can we break the rules
    between us
    only teardrops
    How many times do we have to fight
    how many times till we get it right
    between us
    only teardrops

    What’s gone between us
    has come between us
    only teardrops
    What’s gone between us
    has come between us

    How many times..

    Craig, he’s gorgeous!
    Reminded me of when my nephew was about 18 months old, and woke from a nap – sis and I heard him singing his way through the (awful) Barney song, and peeped thru a crack in the door. Eventually he spotted his mum – “YOU! Go inna kitchen!” He’s taking his GCSE’s now.

  • Jives

    That’s so lovely Craig.

    You and Nadira must be so proud.

    What a warm and life affirming post.

    Thank you :.)

    @ April Showers
    Indeed.
    It was deeply puzzling to me at how the great tyrants of this world – many who have kids themselves – could do things that hurt kids somewhere else. I found it very difficult to fathom until I heard someone talking about sociopaths and psychopaths, and at how such people cannot empathize with their victims. Then it made sense as it did at how they managed to climb the rungs of power.

  • nevermind

    I remember him laying in his whippy cot on the kitchen table in Newmarket road, watching his mum make plov for about 20 of Craigs helpers, he’s grown so much and he’s lost his baby speck.

    May he grow up into a kind young man with open eyes and compassion for others.

    Is this the modern equivelant of a stranger showing you pictures of his kids on a train and you feel obliged to say something complementary?

    Well i guess it is Mr Murray’s blog after all…seems like a good kid..

  • Jives

    Chris Jones,

    “Is this the modern equivelant of a stranger showing you pictures of his kids on a train and you feel obliged to say something complementary?”

    No Chris,i think you’re wrong there.It’s a blog hosted by a principled chap who has,over many years,fostered a small online community here who care and many of whom know Craig-and his family-personally.

    Stop being such a sourpuss.

  • Uzbek in the UK

    Thank you for sharing this video with us, Mr Murray.

    When he grows up I am sure he will be proud of father like you.

  • Chris Jones

    @Jives – You’re obviously not familliar with light hearted abstractness. You might want to try removing your head from your rectum every now and then – it might help you realise that it’s possible to admire people without sounding like a member of a North Korean kool aid drinking cult
