Kaddish for the city
So anyway I started surfing around Ken's writings elsewhere. Here he analyses the results. Here he describes London in a tube strike, concluding
If you find yourself fiddling at your desk or stuck at home in the strike, play this game.
This is what London was like every day before the Congestion Charge. Thank God for Ken Livingstone.
And expect worse. As we move towards a government that is likely to be even more unreasonable on worker’s rights than “New Labour” has been, the chances are we will see a lot more of this.
And here Ken B dreams a song. Due to the joys of google and the unique way that the BBC is funded, I was soon listening to Maurice Ravel's "Chanson Hebraiques" as Ken heard it, at about 1:15 on Rob Cowan's Radio 3 breakfast show on Monday. If that dissappears or isn't available in your country, you can listen to an mp3 snippet from the record company Hyperion. A bit of information here.
