A debate was started in our office this week - does all music originate from Africa? Unashamedly I have tunes from Taylor Swift to Justin Timberlake on my playlists - but I was wondering is the reason I love Taylor's 'I Knew You Were Trouble' so much because it could easily pass for an RnB track that Rihanna could have sung?
So, there are absolutely no women in the V Festival comedy line-up. Not one, in a list of over 30 comedians! Surely this is craziness. In a year when the BBC have announced there will be at least one woman on every panel show, and after the nationwide outcry when comedian Jenny Collier was cancelled from a line-up due to "too many women on the bill".
When we address what drug law reforms mean in real terms, we can use this as a case in point. Seattle are in process of a rational, humane, affable conversation of responsibility, compared with that of V-Festival who are flailing in the wind and are arguably operating outside the laws that we do actually have.
