“The world is like a Mask dancing. If you want to see it well you do not stand in one place”
“Do they know it’s Christmas?” Well of course they bloody do. They’ll probably go to Church, and then spend the day with their families. I find the return of Geldof’s fundraising wonder song deeply problematic. His efforts in fighting the Ebola crisis are laudable, but the lyrics of the song betray the startling grip of an inherited image of Africa. Academia has a great deal to answer for.
