As our next JR Quartet gig is sold out, I'm delighted to say we've added another one for OCT 26 at 6.30pm. I'm also doing My Last Supper for a week in Nov and in early dec (which is being livestreamed). All live shows here

I wouldn’t dream of it. David’s suggestion they this is over reaching newspaper columnists is bang on. We serve a useful purpose, fashioning an elegant argument at top speed in response to events. But thinking that makes you fit to govern is a delusion.

I felt I was posting too much on twitter. So I decided to run a bath to distract myself. Put in the bubble bath. Then left it and got distracted by twitter. And now I have a situation. Which I’m tweeting about. It’s all a bit meta isn’t it.

Just found the whole thread and it's even more bizarre than I recall. It ends with suggesting that if I want to devote time to others I should give him a call. At the time he was being paid circa £120,000 to write a column for the times.

A few years ago berated me on twitter for not having committed myself to public service as he had. Looking at his latest announcements - 7000 long truck queues at Dover, permits required for Kent - I do wonder just how well served by him the public have been.

Voices from London's hospitality industry on the 10pm Curfew. A long piece with a short message: it's an ill-thought out, bloody mess. (And kudos to for a serious piece of work to a very tight deadline.)

This just in. If your car is chauffeur-driven you will not need to wear a mask. A cynical person would point out that this means the cabinet, being driven around in government cars, have exempted themselves. But I am NOT that cynical person. We're all in this together. and so on.

I chose Tunbridge Wells very carefully a) because it's actually rather lovely b) you can probably cope and c) I'm not brave enough to mess with Sevenoaks.

You think I didn't google which Kent TW is in? This is Twitter, Emma. I take my wry, knowing snarkiness very seriously

Thank god there weren't any unforeseen consequences to Brexit. It's all going brilliantly. Still, I'm all for London having a hard border with Kent. I mean, have you been to Tunbridge Wells lately? The state of it...

They do, but as the brasserie which is the majority of the building will have to close by 10, we too have to be out

Please note. Because of the new Covid 10pm curfew for hospitality, has had to change its show times slightly. The 7pm will now start at 6.30pm and the 9.30pm will start at 8.30pm. The Coqs website hasn't updated yet but my live shows page has.
