I’m hoping this story will appeal to both sides of the Atlantic after the clip of Laurence Fox arguing with an audience member seemed to go a bit viral in the US too.
In this post-truth world, trying to navigate the truth when reading/watching the news is in itself almost as difficult as the work of a detective. Much research has to be done in order to separate fact from fiction, and this is indeed a growing problem in the media – emotions are more important than facts. It is something the right and left are both incredibly guilty of. Just look at the campaigns of the 2016 presidential election candidates. And nobody seems to have learnt any lessons since. Instead, we who care about the actual truth of stories are forced to take upon the role of Sherlock Holmes and ruthlessly scrutinise everything, caring only for facts.
While the year is still young, I thought I'd share my top ten films of the last decade. I've had some brilliant experiences in the cinema in this time and Whereas many of these may be popular choices, I hope some will inspire readers to go and watch something they haven't seen before. Also a heads up to anyone else new to Vocal, this is the second time I'm writing this as I got to number 3 the first time after forgetting to save changes and lost it. So, yeah, ehm, don't do that. To be fair I'm probably the only one stupid enough to do that. Anyway:
I’ve never had a New Year’s resolution. That is because I’ve always had a cynical attitude towards them. I feel if there’s something about your life that you feel you need change, change it!! Why do you have to wait until New Year? And on top of that, people hardly ever keep them anyway. They really are completely pointless in my eyes.
Difficult decision deciding which story with which to introduce myself to Vocal, so here's something a bit niche, but hopefully still interesting.
