Could You Be A Spinner ?

There is a Spinners job vacant at Labour HQ. . In order to fill the boots of the smoothy chops New Labour arachnoid you will of course have to pass the test . The test was discovered by Mr. Croydonian and it involves taking a well know story film play poem novel or or what you will, and producing a highly misleading one line summary . Here are some examples :
Billy Elliot: Union worker turns back on strikers for personal gain.
Deliverance: Tourists experience local hospitality.
E.T.: Out-of-control pet causes mayhem, sadness.
Star Wars: Religious extremist terrorists destroy government installation, killing thousands.
Here is my effort ....
Casablanca - Drunk Misanthropist`s links to Terrorism exposed.

Shane - Immigrants Prepared to Use Violence to Take Land
The Ancient Mariner- Slight Delay Causes Over Reaction ( Travel Times Improved Overall Said Spokesman)
Robin Hood - Criminal Gangs Maintain Grip On Terrified Population.

Titanic - Over 1000 miles of trouble Free cruising ( The untold story)

Are you a better spinner ? Ok then , spin us a line and let us see ! I wonder if Hopi Sen who really is a hired spin would have a go .I bet he's good
