Her impact is extraordinary. There’s never been anything like it even if the scramble by politicians to be associated with her does leave a taste of sick in the back of my throat.

I came across this now just and it made me laugh out loud. They’ll be engaged to Subalterns in the Grenadiers this time next year so I’d imagine the foray into politics will be a short one.

A book recommendation for our times...
at 17:13 30 Jul 2019

I romped through this in a day and can’t recommend it highly enough.






“The Ministry of Truth is the best book I have read in a long time. Fizzing with ideas yet superbly readable, it takes us though Orwell’s life and the development of twentieth-century utopias and dystopias, to the long afterlife of Orwell’s greatest work, read and misread during the Cold War as simple anti-communist propaganda, then in the 1980s as a failed prophecy, before finally and frighteningly showing it as a warning for our own age. When today 1984 is scrubbed from the internet in China, Russia weaponises lies on social media, and in the West a Trump adviser talks of “alternative facts” on his Inauguration Day, Lynskey's book is both a warning and an exhortation for us all to be stubborn as Orwell was with facts, and like Winston Smith to cling to the belief that 2+2=4.”

The Spanish Civil War.
at 10:42 3 Jun 2019

Can any of you remember watching the brilliant Granada documentary series on the Spanish Civil War when it aired in the early ‘80s? Some kind soul has posted up all six episodes on YouTube for you to enjoy again.

If you were too young to catch it first time around treat yourself now. Frank Finlay’s narration is a joy as is the way the production enables protagonists from all the melee of factions to tell their own story and explain their own motivations and disappointments.

Episode one to get you started:

Right then, I didn’t forget, I had a brief chat with somebody from her publishers earlier and the third and final instalment of her Thomas Cromwell series is due for release in the first quarter of next year and will be titled ‘The Mirror and the Light.

Sorry if you were expecting it earlier, don’t shoot the messenger!
