• Politics needs good understanding and good practice
    Theresa May speaks about national unity. It is true that we are a divided nation.We are divided not just by Brexit (which comes from a deep, historic division in the Tory party over Europe), but also by inequality of wealth and income.We are also divided from each other by our beliefs.

    Offensive to muslims according to non-muslim equalities enthusiast Labour’s candidate for Metro Mayor, Lesley “Person” Mansell is going to provide us with lots of ENTERTAINMENT. Not least because this ridiculous Equalities and Diversity Manager for the NHS appears to have learned the cut and thrust of power politics on the mean streets of the Mendips as Chair of Radstock Town Council.

  • Film Review: I Am Not Your Negro
    I first read James Baldwin recently, and it seemed serendipitous that this film was released so soon after.  I’ve seen the famous Oxford Union debate between Baldwin, the subject of this film, and William F. Buckley, an unbearably pompous, verbose and slimy writer and pundit famous in the US in the 1960s.  That debate, about the state of race relations in the USA at the time (1965), was won comfortably ... more
