Dapper Laughs, The Real Housewives, Benefit Street: 2014, the year in TV 20.12.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
In the eternal battle between ‘reality’ and more expensive forms of TV, reality won again. Plus, six of the best episodes from 2014 What times we live in. With the very foundations of civilisation having been shaken by a fop with a political opinion, TV in 2014 found itself in a funny old way. “Who is the everyman, what does he want, and why does he haunt my nightmares?” it seemed to ask. TV commissioners strung out on Capriccio Nespressos and dreams of relevancy clutched their heads, surrounded by Pret A Manger receipts and Post-It Notes scrawled with things like: “YOUTH!” “SELFIE!” and “WON’T THE FOCUS GROUP EVER SHOW ME MERCY?!?!?!” Perhaps this is how Dapper Laughs – whose schtick boils down to saying “fanny” at confused passers-by – came to have his own, ill-fated series. It’s a strong contender for car crash of the year, but was pipped to the post, IMO, by Party House. If you missed it, the show documented the hedonism-by-numbers of students from across the land (Hertfordshire, mainly) as they went ...

Will stage protest if Congress opposes e-rickshaw bill in Rajya Sabha: BJP 20.12.2014 DNA: Urban Tales
Delhi BJP on Saturday threatened to stage protest outside the residences of Congress leaders if they oppose 'e-rickshaw bill' in Rajya Sabha. A bill to regularise e-rickshaws and provide for driving licences for battery-operated vehicles was introduced in Lok Sabha recently, paving the way for such vehicles to ply in the national capital and other places. "E-rickshaw drivers are afraid if Congress leaders oppose this bill in Rajya Sabha, it may not be passed because the BJP is not in the majority in the Rajya Sabha," Delhi BJP's unorganised workers morcha president Anand Sahu said. "We have decided that if Congress opposes this bill in Rajya Sabha, e-rickshaw drivers will gherao the houses of its leaders," he said. Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari had introduced Motor Vehicles Amendment Bill, 2014, in Lok Sabha amid protest from Opposition members including Congress who objected to introduction of the legislation after mentioning it in the supplementary list of business. They demanded the ...

VHP's Praveen Togadia demands stipend for priests instead of Imams in West Bengal 20.12.2014 DNA: Money
The Vishwa Hindu Parishad's (VHP) international working president Praveen Togadia has condemned West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee’s move of providing a monthly stipend of Rs 2,500 to the state’s Imams or the clergy. Togadia has instead, demanded that the stipend be given to priests and unemployed Hindus.  “Banerjee talks about reservation of Muslims. Why is she providing the Imams a stipend from the tax we pay when so many Hindus are unemployed in the state. Instead, she should provide purohits with the stipend,” Togadia said while speaking at VHP’s first-ever Hindu sammelan in Kolkata on Saturday.  This gathering was part of the VHP's golden jubilee celebrations and top guns from the saffron pantheon, including RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat were present at the rally. BJP state president Rahul Sinha also attended the rally. Contentious issues such as stipends for Imams in the state, religion conversion, Bangladeshi infiltration and cow slaughter dominated Togadia’s speech.  Taking a dig at the Bengal ...

HRD Minister Smriti Irani seeks greater integration of North East with rest of India 19.12.2014 DNA: Urban Tales
Seeking greater socio-cultural and political integration of the north-eastern region with the rest of the country, HRD Minister Smriti Irani on Friday pressed for fostering a "my home India" temperament among all citizens irrespective of which region they belonged to. "No Indian while talking about our country should use the word mainland," she said, adding the belief should be "this is my home India." The minister also talked about some of the educational initiatives taken by her ministry like the 'Ishan Vikas programme' to facilitate north-east students do their summer internship at IITs, IIMs and other central universities. General Secretary of RSS Bhaiyyaji Joshi said the present NDA government has shown the courage to take on the external forces fomenting trouble in the region. "There are external forces creating trouble there. Bangladeshi infiltrators are there. Need of the hour to safeguard the borders," he said. He said the government is sensitive to the problems in the area and bring the ...

Die-ins demand that we bear witness to black people's fears that they'll be next | Paul M Farber 19.12.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
After Ferguson, after Eric Garner, calls for racial justice are made by reenacting the men’s deaths. It’s a storied – and successful – protest tactic Die-ins – protests in which participants lie in public areas to mime death –are effective not just because they are acts of theatre that identify with the dead, but because they are visible expressions of fear by people who believe they might be the next to die. And they have roots deeper than the protest ingenuity that has defined so much of 2014. Across the US and the UK and beyond, thousands of young people are halting street traffic, shutting down shopping malls and disrupting other people’s lives to “die-in” for racial justice. Convened largely by black youth activists, well-attended marches against police violence in dozens of US cities are convincing displays of growing dissent – but the related acts of urgent public mourning are tools of moral indictment, not just protest. Activists are staging their own deaths because speaking out against systemic ...

That’s me in the picture: Ros Sare passing the poll tax protest, London, 1990 19.12.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
‘A line of about 10 riot police, with batons and shields were chasing people up Regent Street. It was horrible’ I was surprised when I saw this photograph in a colour supplement a few days after the demonstration. It was captioned “A West End shopper argues with a protester”, but that’s not what happened at all: I was trying to calm him down. I wrote to tell them truth, and to my astonishment they published my letter. I wasn’t aware there was a demonstration that day. That morning, my husband and I had been at Heathrow to see our oldest son off on his travels, and to cheer ourselves up I had booked tickets to see Noël And Gertie at the Harold Pinter theatre, just off Haymarket. We got off the tube at Oxford Circus and wandered down Regent Street. It was lovely and sunny. A crowd was marching up Oxford Street with banners objecting to the poll tax. There were babies in pushchairs and dogs on leads – it was a nice, jolly ...
Why we painted over Berlin’s most famous graffiti 19.12.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Berlin’s gentrification and zombification is in full swing. We would rather destroy our street art than let it contribute to that process The sound of a megaphone shrills through the cold Berlin night air. Some passersby yell at us in anger. Others silently wipe tears off their cheeks. “It’s the first time in my career as an artist that somebody is booing me,” says a voice next to me. We stop painting for a moment to watch the small crowd that has gathered on the other side of the fence, about 25 metres beneath our lifting platform. But there’s little time for introspection: almost 1,000 sq m of brick wall still needs to be covered with black paint by tomorrow morning. Last week, from late Thursday night to early Friday morning, I and several others painted over two murals by Italian artist Blu in Kreuzberg , often referred to as Berlin’s most iconic street art. Since then, the German capital has been full of speculation as to who did this and why. Many assumed that property developers had killed off ...
