He [Farage] has argued, notoriously, that ‘any normal and fair-minded person would have a perfect right to feel concerned if a group of Romanian people suddenly moved in next door.’ Leaving ‘normality’ and ‘fair-mindedness’ aside, his use of the term ‘sudden’ here is surely revealing. It’s as if Romanians don’t move into a property quite the way other people do. You can shut the windows and lock the doors against them, but ‘suddenly’ there the Romanians are, three or four of them, with the same hungry look, floating eerily towards you. Foreign nationals with HIV should also, according to Mr Farage, not be allowed to settle in the UK. So it’s something to do with blood as well. And Romanians in particular are singled out as a drain on the nation’s… resources.

Best selling novelist Kate Mosse talks to TMO about Gothic fiction, adventure fiction, and why now is such a good moment to be a writer. In the lengthy interview she also talks about how she found her own writing style

"It was only when I understood that the person you are as a reader, and the person you are as a writer might coincide, but actually they might be different, that I resolved this. In my case the things that I actually love about reading, which are pace and character, and plot and storytelling, matter more to me than what I admire about reading. "

Great interview with Canadian rockers +arkellsofficial. who talk to us about songwriting, spotify, and political songs:
"I generally like political music that has subtlety. The Clash are very political but they don’t often hit you over the head."

“Here, perhaps the frightful expression ‘consumption of music’ really does apply after all. For perhaps this continuous tinkle, regardless of whether anyone wants to hear it or not…will lead to a state where all music has been consumed, worn out. In [Wilhelm] Busch’s time, music was still often (at least, not always!) ‘found disturbing’, but some day it may no longer disturb; people will be as hardened to this noise as any other.”
