Welcome to this week’s round-up of the articles and blog pieces we’ve been reading over the past week but didn’t get around to covering in detail on the blog. Please feel free to add relevant links or comment!
NB: Round-up posts contain links to external websites and blogs with comment threads and other material that we have no control over. Along with this, we don’t always agree with every viewpoint expressed in the items or the sites containing them. As with actual F-Word content, none of the material reflects any “official view from The F Word” because not all contributors to the site will necessarily hold the same opinions on the topics or pieces shared.
A reminder of J K Rowling’s piece in The Times in April 2010, where she explains why she pays her UK tax. It seems this has all been brought up in the light of Rowling’s new book The Casual Vacancy but, in the current political climate, I think it bears repeating anyway.
YouTube description: Still of the cover of Electrelane’s The Power Out (2004). This is beige and overlaid with six squares. The first of these contains the name of the group and title of the album, while the others are misty sepia photos of a mix of quaint souvenir shots and animals such as ponies, a cat and a dog.
