Thursday at the Hay Festival
Drop in on Angie Thomas, best selling author of The Hate You Give, having a brew with Jenny Valentine but keep moving without stopping through self-satisfied splitter Vince Cable being reasonable about various despots he secretly admires.
Definitely sit down with Rebecca Ruth Gould and Kayvan Tahmasebian who talk about translation as activism, the kind of subject a festival like this excels in making public. Where else? Nowhere apart from a university, in the canteen, if you’re lucky.
You could end your day covered in politician’s cum by joining the Blair/Campbell circle jerk, except Blair won’t come because he’s a Catholic and Campbell has already got his rocks off at the prospect at sharing digital space with his soapy master. Nasty. Strangely, the ‘chat function’ will not be available. Should the Hay Festival be giving a warmonger a platform? Only if it pulls in the punters, obviously.
