Posthumous Green Award

Sorry but the pressures of the campaign have caused a lag in my regular features – normal service will resume after the election.

In the meantime, a deserved award to Bertolt Brecht. Yeah, he was a womaniser and maybe a bit of a chancer, but he nailed his colours firmly to the radical left-wing mast when it was a brave thing to do. And he left us some terrific plays which in the right hands can still work wonderfully well. Plonk him in the 21st century and he’d probably be tweeting away to undermine Cameron, Brown and Clegg while simultaneously writing a film with Terry Gilliam. Now that’s a movie I’d pay to see!

How cold is my valley?

Who I am

This blog started during the months before the 2010 General Election, in which I was the Green candidate for Calder Valley. It's morphed into an account of green activism...and other meanderings.
