Madison Avenue: such an amazing, tuneless blip on the Australian music scene. What’s Cheyne Coates up to these days? A “where are they now?” article from last year doesn’t have any answers, but maybe she’s getting singing lessons.

Yet more on Lionel Shriver:
“When I come to your country,” Shriver’s chin is raised now. Her voice is strict, as if she’s speaking to small children. Though she’s shorter than I am, she somehow still manages to peer condescendingly down the bridge of her nose. “When I come to your country. I expect. To be treated. With hospitality.”
Let’s talk about the elephant in the room (Said elephant being the institutionalised privilege that clears the path for writers with the most privileged to have the best access to publication.)

I’m astonished that they invited Shriver as keynote speaker – even the most cursory survey of her UK journalism would make it clear that she’s a hateful, bullying, far-right-wing professional troll who loves to define “free speech” as “I want to hurt someone weaker just because I can”. She even writes for “Standpoint”, which is basically “We Must Exterminate The Subhuman Mahometan Filth And If You Disagree You Are A Nazi Who Wants To Kill All The Jews” Magazine.
Please remove my first comment – I was so angry I typed a sarcastic racial slur without thinking and I don’t approve of the sarcastic use of racial slurs – sorry.
But I agree about Shriver, I assume BWF wanted some controversy. Which, well, good work, guys.
