Next Thursday, in protest that BBC Question Time doesnt even try to represent working people or poor on it's "political programme" we are convening a twitter "Well Red Book Club."
The excuse is that Question Time is representative of the electorate makes it more and more isolated from real people. As those elected are from a smaller and ever decreasing "elite," and as a direct response the electorate is becoming snaller and smaller. This is almost like the plot of the book, "Seeing," by Jose Saramago!
None of those on the panel last night represented me,my values nor my class. The only "working class" person on the panel was David Davis, for goodness sake!
The books we will be discussing will be "Flowers for Algernon" by Daniel Keyes.
Week 2 and 3
To make this a regular event, the following week we will be discussing "Mockingbird" by Walter Tevis. Week three will be "Seeing" by Jose Saramago.
We will, next week, in protest at BBC Question Time's ridiculous policy of keeping the majority of people from political discourse, be using the hashtag #bbcqt. See you on twitter! (@nwsocialist)
