I was due to attend the Bafta and BFI Screenwriters’ Lecture Series by renowned writer of Brookside, Cracker, and The Lakes, Jimmy McGovern.

I was going to write about class and Canary Wharf, as Jimmy McGovern’s shows often centre on working class characters.

Wharf column about butt monkeys who play misic loudly from their phone on public transport

| Journalism

logo“There I was, quietly erasing a day’s worth of work encounters from my mind on the DLR, when Satan’s ass trumpet shattered my reverie.

Since when did it become publicly acceptable to play your “music” out loud on the tinny speaker of your phone?”
