Two thoughts occur to me whenever I think of Vanessa Redgrave.
One, being ejected from Womad in Berkshire for haranguing Festival-goers about Chechyna.
Two, after the mass-murder of hundreds of children at Beslan, prattling-on on Newsnight about “her friends” whom the Russian State was harassing.
I hope she is as sick as a parrot tonight.
PS The Daily Mail headline headline made me giggle.
PPS Okay, there is a third reason for thinking of this Redgrave. The Charge of the Light Brigade, amongst other fillums, was quite good.
