Going that extra mile

The striking American screenwriters will be delighted to hear that the TUC is doing its bit in support:

"TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber and Deputy General Secretary Frances O'Grady will join members of the Writers Guild of Great Britain (WGGB) in a demonstration on the steps of Congress House at 12noon".

And the address of the TUC? Congress House, Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3LS.

If the cameras do not turn up, I think Brendan and Frances will look very, very silly. How does one demonstrate when the object of one's demonstration is not there to be demonstrated against?

Not sure I can afford to take the time off, but if anyone else is free to record the proceedings....

Whilst we're on topics cinematic, I know little of Philip Pullman's work or views, but I notice that the evil blonde villainess in The Golden Compass is called Mrs Coulter. Is this, I wonder, in any way significant?

That Pullman is not keen on religion etc is well known, but the nearest I can get to pinning him down as an out lefty is that he writes for The Guardian from time to time.

The only thing these people seem to be able to demonstrate is crass stupidity. I can't understand why people continue to pay their wages.
