    Just caught the last half of Ramblings with Clare Balding (not usually a fan). She was walking with a group of refugees and students from START (Students and Refugees Together) in Plymouth. Rather uplifting about the benefits of walking for these refugees who have come to the UK, and some lovely words from the social workers running it about what their aims are, and dispelling some of the misconceptions about refugees and what help they get.

    Joan Bakewell has written a play, Keeping in Touch, partly based on her and Pinter's relationship, which he used as the inspiration for Betrayal. Both are on R4 at the moment - Keeping in Touch, Betrayal

    Not had a chance to listen to either yet so I don't know either is any good.

    This is comedy gold, really worth a listen :cool:

    "Across Britain, thousands of people have stopped paying council tax, water rates and speeding fines. They think they have the law on their side, thanks to the 1215 Magna Carta treaty between King John and the Barons. They argue that the present Queen has breached her obligations under the treaty and so has in effect deposed herself and even become a traitor. As a result, all laws passed by parliament are invalid, the courts are shams, and government officials are imposters. Instead, they swear an oath of allegiance to a group of members of the House of Lords."

    ETA: Mr loo recommended this to me so I put it here cos he's usually right, I'm not so sure, it's a bit twee, maybe it's his voice, or the music because this subject matter should be right up my alley.

    Takes a few minutes to get going but this Sam Simmonds 15mins show is good one. Generally comedy on R4 is dire so this was super refreshing. Apologies to Okra....

    Sam Simmonds in not a people person

    The only programme, apart from the news, to which I listen on the radio is The Archers on Radio 4. I have been listening to that longest running soap opera since it began in 1951 when I was a year old.
