Derek’s back and he’s sure to provoke a debate! Derek became the face of 1980’s militancy as one of the ‘47’ councillors who took on Thatcher in 1984 and put himself on the line when surcharged and banned from office by the House of Lords.

Arts Cuts in the North west

24192_356467452167_630607167_3125803_6313732_nToday Twitter brought down the Arts Council webserver - it didn't, it was simply a power cut in Manchester.

Today the Arts Council destroyed the Arts in England - NO that didn't happen either.  The arts organisations are suffering, along with the staff, the real people who work hard and the artistic programmes but in the long term everyone just gets on with the job of work.

In Liverpool we have seen 11% cuts portrayed as a good result and they maybe when compared against the likes of Urban Strawberry Lunch who run the St. Lukes Church aka the bomby getting cut completely.
