Today’s T/L v reminiscent of romantic partners who constantly slate you and tell you to eff off for years on end, then when you finally leave, become absolutely furious you had the audacity, while simultaneously telling everyone you’re a psycho they’re better off without.

Very sorry to hear of the passing of Paul Flynn, a man whose politics and passion I had the privilege to admire from the perspective of being his constituent for most of my life. A working class Newport intellectual of unimpeachable principles.

Michael Dugher leaving the Labour Party is the first thing to make me feel slightly emotionally closer to the Labour Party in about 2 years.

Haha! I’ll have you know JRR Tolkien wrote a couple of great songs for the Zep.

Ha! The boys who still love the Alex Harvey Band but no, they “don’t remember that time he was on the Whistle Test”.

I remember when I was a teenager and a load of the old boys in my local used to go on about what a genius Hunter was etc. So I bought Mott’s greatest hits. What an underwhelming afternoon that was.

I mean there’s nothing wrong with Mott the Hoople, but they’re in with another thousand good bands of that era. To think of them alongside Roxy, Zeppelin etc. is just a frighteningly mediocre idea of what music can be.

Few things stop me in my tracks, but whenever somebody says Mott the Hoople were one of the greatest bands of the 70s I have to check I’m not in some weird multi-dimensional coma world where they didn’t just have 1 1/2 good singles.

Clearly it means keep your pyjama top on or the ground will drain all your blood out of your arm.

This Small Fortune programme is one of those Alan Partridge pitches, isn’t it, unearthed and dusted off for these serious times?

Here we go with the halftime pitch-quality analysis, to add a bit of calm and nuance to the match-time pitch quality analysis.

If you weren't moved by those children today, those kids who are brave enough to face the horror of climate change and to take action, then you must have a heart of ice.

The attitude is a bit “bloody cheek”. Like the Queen came to visit and nobody ran the hoover round.

Our friend, co-founder, and former design editor has been nominated for competition and it's a public vote, so here's a great chance to give a little back to someone who was instrumental in bringing Wales Arts Review to life - go and vote!
