. on reading winning MILKMAN by Anna Burns: "And Milkman is funny. Did I mention how funny it is? A reminder that humour always exists, and it’s important to not write humourless books, because they are disingenuous."

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.
