Dominique Kidd

Dominique Kidd was founded in Nottingham during the late 1970s. She is principally comprised of coffee and biscuits and holds the world record for excess speakage.

One of the original three members of Page 45, Dominique has left four times only to reappear like the proverbial bad penny without once returning her leaving presents. She will never be leaving again, for I will not be writing her references.

As of Sunday 9th September 2012 Dominique joins Stephen and Jonathan as full-time co-manager.

Whom do you love?
Why, my charming Wife, of course! And my friends, my dog, and our insane little assortment of family.

I am tempted to say currently (2012) the entire cabinet. But actually no one. Can’t be arsed.

Many, many things! Insensitivity, cruelty, selfishness, egotism and self-deceit spring to mind.

People who, despite their fears and weaknesses, stand up against forces they know will crush them. Valery Legasov, for example

Jeremy Clarkson

Do you have any recurring dreams?
All my dreams take place in the same set of locations so they are sort of all recurring. Occasionally a new one gets added to the mix. Like unlocking a new zone!

Introducing my girlfriend to World of Warcraft

A single occasion where I did not speak up strongly enough against something I viewed as wrong.

Tough one! I cannot pick between Natalie Merchant and Chan Marshall.

Who’s the best looker?

Rachel Weisz, Ellen Pompeo, Karen Bardsley, Audrey Tautou.

Noooooooooooooo you can’t make me pick! Bloody hell. Let me just pick any of the ACME NOVELTY LIBRARIES, because once I read them they took root and now there is a part of my head that is always in them.

How would you like to be remembered?
In a way which causes the least pain to those left behind.

What will you be doing next?
Going to bed. We have two duvets, one to lie under and one to lie on. So awesome.

Tell me a secret about life!
Secrets will destroy you, avoid them.

Tell me a secret about yourself!
When I was a child I thought the sewer access cover in our back garden was the entrance to the Batcave and so I jumped up and down on it endlessly to try to break in. Never occurred to me that I would just end up *falling into the fucking sewer*.
