Eel Pie Island

You see, the thing is, Brian, that God is a hateful god.

Must be, because if God is good, then why is there evil in the world?

Why is there pain and hate and greed and war? Doesn’t make sense.

Eel Pie Island, Twickenham, TW1

Why is there love and hope and joy?”

From Mike Leigh’s screenplay for Naked (1995)
