A few days ago I called Lozza Fox a cunt on twitter. I have no regrets. A passing comment on a friends comment I thought very little about having explained why I thought that on my own feed. Lozza Fox retweeted my comment and the absolute gates of Tory hell opened up o...

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...

A few days ago a tweet emerged from a writer about the Netflix show The Witcher. It went like this

"To be fair, in context, I was saying women couldn't sword-fight with men trained for battle. My larger point was that by depicting women doing things they wouldn't do in...

I've just seen Greta Gerwigs Little Women. I hadn't, previously, read the book; in fact I knew so little about it I assumed it was in the cannon of the Bronte Sister and Jane Austen at the like... That's how little I knew about it. But hey - it's a fucking masterpiece...

I've just read an Article by a woman called Helen Lewis who I don't know. I didn't like it really but that's besides the point; I'm using this blog space to try and work out, for myself, and for anyone else if they're interested how we can be progressive about conversa...

I haven't written anything in here for six months nearly. I think that's probably a combination of being busy writing and buying a house and just general life but here we go...

We live in a time that is defined by divisionism. We are educated to blame other people for t...

Last night I went to the Manchester International Festival to see Idris Elba and Kwame Kwei-Armah's TREE and I think it's important to share a few thoughts on it.

Firstly, BORING, need to talk about the controversy around it. I'm going to skim over it because it's the l...

Last night I watched YEP young directors version of Crave. Thinking about Crave and 448 Pyschosis all I can see is pain. These are plays that document the pain of existence, the burden of depression, and the weight of the idea of death as liberty.

Now firstly I'm going...

Last week I had the privilege of spending a week in Hull talking to retired people about advice they'd give to generations below them. It was all great. Here are some highlights:

"Take Your Time" (nearly everyone said this)

"Enjoy it"

"Don't Worry About Other People".
