Gracey Babs' Highlights of the Hay festival today...

Rageh Omaar and Ahmed Dahir Elmi talk to Lord Paul Boateng

Tuesday at the Hay Festival

Have your political bubble stroked from the inside by Matthew d’Ancona, Lisa Nandy and Peter Rickets who will be creating a BBC radio show in an alternate, slightly more liberal universe.

Before that, the very reasonable Rageh Omaar and Ahmed Dahir Elmi talk to Lord Paul Boateng (still alive) about setting up the first national library in Somalia, which will probably give us all some much needed perspective regarding privilege.

Supermodel turned activist Lily Cole chats with Alice Albinia, who obviously was born into the extended Crass family with a name like that, about ‘female power...’ and ‘potential’. That could go either way, I think.

HELP OUTSIDELEFT

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]

WRITE FOR OUTSIDELEFT

If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
