Labour need a leader suited to the 56th Century *

Great interview in The New Statesman in which Ken Livingstone, former Mayor of London, declares for a Special Circumstances operative, last seen overcoming a world-eater even though she is by that stage just a severed head without any eyelid, as the next leader of the Labour party. On the basis that she was uploaded before the missions & so could be cloned.

Boris would probably want fucking John Carter or someone!

Muscley Tarzan idiot

The New Statesman, BTW, also recently curated the futuristic poet Keston Sutherland! Well done them. More on him when I'm done with the Grimwood / Banks posts!

* Banks's Culture novels are not actually set in the 56th Century, I am being witty! They are set sort-of nowadays and Jeremy Hunt is our envoy.
