This is a really really happy morning for me.
My two youngest, newly British, voting for Labour, Corbyn, and intelligent political discourse: and at the same time, from my formerly apolitical son’s mouth, I hear the assertion that he could see himself be a grand politician one day in the future!
Doing the Script Writing MA at Goldsmiths, he says: ” You gotta be able to tell a story …” Corbyn told that story for the youth of our country; and in so doing, he gave them the levers of all our futures.
I never thought I would see the day.
My job as father is done.
My children are now engaged and voting citizens.
And – one day – they will beat neoliberalism back to its goddamn cave …
