I just went on Sky News to do a brief chat about where the closure of Theatres, Film and TV Sets and the hospitality industries left creatives and my fund raiser but shat my self. So I wanted to write what I wanted to say here.

In a slight tangent to my usual posts about Art I just wanted to write something really quickly about the Labour Party. As you, probably, know the ballot is now open for selection of the next leader; the choice is Rebecca Long-Bailey, Keir Starmer and Lisa Nandy. This...

A few days ago the BAFTA list came out and there has been, quite rightly, a response to them about the "best film" nominations being from all white male directors (except one). Yesterday the self-celebrating egotist LBC Global broadcaster James O'Brian who's recent boo...
