Willful Suspension of Disbelief

Organic Green Roots

German-based artist Cornelia Konrads creates surreal, site specific installations using materials naturally available at each location. Her ability to deconstruct, elevate, and pause tangible materials offers a sense of whimsy, simultaneously making space for the present moment.

The Fifth Monarchist Prophets… The Epiphany Uprising! Who was Thomas Venner and Anna Trapnel? 2013…. Where Are Our Prophets?

Epiphany St Pauls

Last Sunday, January 6th, was the Christian festival of Epiphany. It was also the date that, in 1661, one Thomas Venner led the Fifth Monarchist Uprising in the city of London against the restoration of the King. As my good friends the Gillett sisters are involved in making a film, with long-time anarchist, Ian Bone, about these esoteric 17th century prophets and rebels I had my own epiphany and headed off to Moorgate in search of Swan Alley where the revolt began and filming was to commence.

Basically, it felt right. The previous night I’d had a spirited but heated argument about the need political activism and the need for radical new ideas with an old mate and vented my total frustration at the pathetic, ghostly, non-presence of the so called “leader” of the Labour opposition. To take on those vicious Old Etonians who dominate the Tory front bench of Parliament we…

Apparently the Conservatives are cross about being compared with the Nazis. Mike Sivier at Vox Political wrote about the circumstances of the comparison, which arose on Monday:This ignorant Tory councillor had better try justifying the deaths his party has caused.

Human Rights abuses

This is a government that is currently at the centre of a United Nations inquiry into abuses of the human rights of sick and disabled people, and is also in breach of the rights of women and children, because of their anti-humanist, draconian welfare “reforms”.

Whilst I am very aware that we need take care not to trivialise the terrible events of the Holocaust by making casual comparisons, there are some clear and important parallels with what is happening to sick and disabled people, poor people and those who are unemployed in the UK and the ideological processes in Nazi Germany: events on…

FEMME FATALE
GARRY BUSHELL FALLS VICTIM TO THE CHARMS OF FATAL MICROBE DONNA BANE.
PIX BY VIRGINIA TURBETT

A BOOZER IN beautiful down-town Stepney is the rendezvous and despite London Transport I manage to arrive at the right time on the right day and in one piece, only to find the place as quiet as the Valley Covered End after last Tuesday’s match and even less well-attended. In fact there’s only the guv’nor there. Still plenty of perambulating and enforced sun-bathing at bus stops has left me with a throat like the inside of the Ayatollah’s y-fronts and with the pub providing a nice line in draught Hemeling I don’t mind hanging about for a few rounds in case my interviewees materialise.
Pint in hand, I case the joint casually. It don’t exactly take a Phil Marlowe to suss it’s a disco pub —…
