Not just a blog, a philosophy
by Jack Monroe, bestselling author of 'A Girl Called Jack'
Realist, writer, reader, reviewer and rocker.
The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.

Yes! If his acceptance speech at the Baftas is anything to go by, I suspect he might be on his way out. Sad.
I didn’t watch the BAFTA ceremony, but I have always enjoyed listening to Mel Brooks, and watching some of his films, especially ‘The Producers’. This was a good article, and covered so much of his life.
Best wishes, Pete. x

I got tired of all award ceremonies after the speeches became more important than the work being honoured.
