  • POEM: Copper Comes A Cropper – today’s Leveson Inquiry hearing | Anna Chen
    had the wisdom of hindsight and hadn t been caught out it would all be all right I m not throwing my colleague out of the back of the sleigh and I can t answer for him but It would have been wiser presentationally For him to have done it different However he is away in Bahrain and you aren t getting him back in Old Blighty Until the heat is off Until you call off the dogs Until the trail has chilled like the champagne we quaffed as we doffed Defending and not challenging That was the error of our ways We are brave and did not back off guv Just because it was News International We were logical and needed the polaroids Coz the tapes and diaries in Glenn s black bags were not enough It was the Bahrain runaway who did not reopen the enquiry He failed it is regrettable That s tough Fear of taking on a powerful enterprise is not the case I did not put the frighteners on the Guardian editor Or spray him with Mace Or rough him up too much Politics over substance I merely turned up to understand But there was no meeting of minds My pulse did not race You could not get off your face with him Unlike the real press proper gents we could have a laugh with Over a drink and a nice dinner Call it folly but Mr Wallis was generous with the Bolly And Yates of the Yard was fond of his jollies I just did not get it and wasn t keeping tally The Met caught Chlamedia off Wallis by getting too pally But we gave him Cressida Dick A lack of evidence beyond the lone rogue reporter Meant rationed resources and an underfunded force Would not be put on the job as a matter of course Please give us more dosh if you wish us to wield the cosh I was overworked with anti terrorism The Olympics Not my decision A junior did it and is sunning himself in sandy climes I am an ill man I need a week in a spa Can you recommend one And so they adjourn for another time But spare a thought for the thin blue line Poor Raisa disappeared turned to glue Currently starring in a pet food can near you To stop her singing like a canary Squealing like a pig at an inquiry Take the porkers she carried She knew Cameron s arse inside and out Blue heart and stout Fullsome about Coulson He put it about Withdrew when the thin blue sphincter tightened Purged the toad and found his load lightened Raisa rode bravely into the student throngs they harried Righting a wrong for the Right Got the stomach for a fight when protesters say neigh And you weigh as much as ten of them With a bobby on your back Truncheoned before luncheon Unfree by tea Scuppered before supper A hack for

  • More or Less Asian? Stereotypes in Literature: Asia House talk 12 Nov 2014
    second episode managed to dismantle the myth of Chinatown This dark region filled with opium smoking dagger wielding villains is a location in the mind of the beholder and says more about what lurks beneath in the psyche than it does about the mundane reality The series is being repeated on Radio 4 Extra and is available to listen on iPlayer for another three weeks However the BBC series proved to be a rare slip through the white dominant net I continue to be shocked but unsurprised by the liberal establishment s continued demented depictions of the Chinese in output such as the BBC s Sherlock reboot where everything was updated except for the sinister yellow peril in The Blind Banker episode and the anachronistic Radio 4 programme Fu Manchu in Edinburgh which drew uncomfortably from the episode in the Chinese In Britain series in which we d looked at the early Chinese medical students These were rarely glimpsed real human beings who d done so much good for British society snottily eclipsed by a cheap rehash of the yellow peril stereotype Elsewhere we re rendered invisible in areas where we obviously have a presence in the real world There has never been an east Asian family on Eastenders for example I speak as an East Ender myself when I say that this is fairly sic ignorant and stupid And it does us no favours but warms us up for the slaughter The absence of east Asians in the culture means we are a blank canvas onto which all sorts of poisonous narratives and images can be projected So when the Blair government required a scapegoat for its inept handling of the Foot and Mouth Disease outbreak in 2001 it was able to turns the guns of the press onto the UK Chinese by briefing Valerie Elliott of The Times that a Chinese restaurant was responsible The media with the honourable exception of The Independent took up the cry lemming like This potentially deadly situation fury was brewing livelihoods were lost farmers had committed suicide Chinese were being targeted and spat at required protests in London and Manchester Chinatowns and meetings with the now defunct Ministry of Agriculture Fisheries and Food MAFF to get minister Nick Brown to vindicate us and for the absurdity of the claim to be made apparent So there is a politcal dimension to issues of identity It s not a luxury add on This is about people s survival More or Less Asian debate at Asia House Wednesday 12th November 2014 About Anna Writer performer and broadcaster View all posts by Anna This entry was posted in Arts China Event Race Talk writing and tagged Fu Manchu literature talk yellow peril Bookmark the permalink Chinese in Britain this week South China Morning Post magazine and BBC Radio 4 Extra Doctor Who review Death in Heaven season finale an ideological battleground Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are

Posted on November 15 2014 by Anna Doctor Who Death in Heaven season finale an ideological battleground SPOILER ALERT Cybermen meet zombies in the second half of this A Matter of Life and Death nick in which our intrepid heroes hissy fit around a lot There s so much that could have worked beautifully in this series How can you have those great production values and Peter Capaldi on board and still make such a hash of it The problem as always is the script The writers caprice runs through the Doctor Who reboot like Nick Clegg s election promises It s all Patrick Duffy in the Dallas shower a dream a mish mash of half remembered images and tropes mis threaded backstory lurches a sudden retro fit and Gallifrey exists the Doctor s nemesis conveniently telling him where Characters don t so much arc as teleport to whichever position the writers decide suits the script du jour Dream logic seems to have been employed to suit the writers rather than designed to delight the audience the way a modern Maya Deren or Bunuel from whom the writers appear at times to be borrowing might do while burrowing into the collective unconscious taking the audience on a ride rather than taking us for a ride Russell T Davies heavy reliance on undermotivated melodrama and shouty frenetics are still after all this time shrilling away like a dentist s drill Clara is SO deeply in love and yet she wastes an irritating plot blocking age verifying like software gone wrong that it really is Danny who s speaking to her from the afterlife Everyone s so cross all the time operating within their own little thunderous clouds of fury Like late night coke fiends running out of Charlie you half expect them to sniff and wipe their noses before running off in the Tardis to score more The producers set Missy short for misogyny lurching around like a menopausal drunk neurotic and malevolent because deep down she lurves the Doctor really Michelle Gomez brings her demented Mary Poppins amusingly to life thanks to a histrionic script and neck breaking nods to Heath Ledger s Joker Turns out Missy s spotted the dominatrix in Clara and the sub in the Time Lord and has expended a ton of energy keeping them together Dunno why It doesn t help the plot but skitters along the surface of better past masters nicking all the glittery bits The script dusts the cobwebs off old favourites Why are you doing this I need you to know we re not so different from a squillion denouments where quelle surprise the protagonist and antagonist are inwardly the same Aw and love conquers all unless you re the season s Big Bad This may be Borg territory poking that hoary old question what makes us human but collective action is trumped by the one single Cyberman Danny Pink who loves more than anyone in the entire history of the human race more than any of the dead who make up the army of Cybermen because some people are more SPESHUL If the Brigadier is capable of redemption as well as Danny then why none of the other Cybermen Why can t the entire Cyberman race be redeemed and escape genocide It aims for the sublime moments in Buffy where the Slayer has to kill Angel gone bad or finally gets to kiss Spike but misses barely achieving bathos There

    by Chris Eldon Lee and Mukti Jain Campion for Culture Wise With musicologist Dr Jonathan Walker Chinese decorative arts are revered in the West From Willow pattern dinner plates to the Brighton Pavilion their designs are regarded as beautiful and sophisticated But for the past two centuries European composers and musicians have had no qualms about mercilessly parodying what they thought of as Chinese tunes As a girl growing up in Hackney the opening orientalised flute strains of the 1970s pop record Kung Fu Fighting by Carl Douglas were enough to send future comedian Anna Chen running for cover The same cliches haunt Turning Japanese by The Vapours Hong Kong Garden by Siouxsie And The Banshees and David Bowie s China Girl They have all followed a pattern set by Claude Debussy Malcolm Arnold Albert Ketelbey and Lancashire Linnet George Formby who were equally guilty of taking Chinese musical motifs and mangling them or simply making them up How did this mocking abuse of a handful of venerable Far Eastern notes begin Musicologist Dr Jonathan Walker accompanies Anna on a historical mission picking out examples on the piano and explaining why and how our western ears hear certain note configurations as oriental from Chopsticks to Chopin They explore the pentatonic scale that chartacterises so much Chinese music delve into the story of the Opium Wars which triggered a deep British disrespect of Chinese musical culture and unveil the earliest dubious examples of Chinoiserie in Western Music And we hear from a new generation of British born Chinese musicians who are putting right the discordant wrongs of the past 200 years Producer Chris Eldon Lee A Culture Wise production for BBC Radio 4 About Anna Writer performer and broadcaster View all posts by Anna This entry was posted in Arts China Chinese Diaspora in Britain Music Radio and tagged BBC Radio 4 Extra chinoiserie race radio Bookmark the permalink Don t let Disney whitewash Mulan Poem for Jeremy Corbyn Labour Pains Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Comment Name Email Website MADAM MIAOW S CULTURE LOUNGE on RESONANCE FM Listen to all the programmes in Anna Chen s Resonance FM series Reaching for my Gnu Reaching for my Gnu Anna s collection of poetry is available at Amazon as an eBook and paperback US readers can buy the ebook here Resonance 104 4FM Radioplayer Madam Miaow Says Anna Chen s Orwell Prize shortlisted blog Anna May Wong Must Die Anna Chen s funny fabulous one woman show a personal journey through the life and crimes of Hollywood s first Chinese screen legend with satire songs and a few laughs Anna s blog FAREWELL David Bowie from a longtime Bowie fan RIP David Bowie IS V A launch party review music event of the year 2013 Understanding the viciousness of the anti Corbyn tendency shades of the Paris Commune Heaven Sent Doctor Who episode satisfies this SF critic at last five star
