Theatre review: high art and savage poverty in Bootle

The Seven Acts of Mercy: It's unlikely this work will get the same exposure as 'I, Daniel Blake', for example. But for those who do get the chance to see it - the voice of the dispossessed speaks loud and clear, and the desire to rid the world of capitalist exploitation once and for all rings out for all to hear.

Film review: Rogue One

It's clear from the off that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, a spin-off from the main saga, is a little bit different. The whole scenario is an allegory for American imperialism and intervention in the Middle East, and the insurgency it has created.

Review: BBC2's Poetry Night

BBC2's Poetry Night - a collection of poetry programmes - got off to an inauspicious start with eulogising over John Betjeman. The highlight, though, was the live performance of Kate Tempest's new work 'Let Them Eat Chaos'. It truly is an amazing work.

Review: international jazz protest storytelling

Music - Radio International (Kefaya): They say that you can tell a lot about a band by its name. Kefaya is an Arabic word meaning 'enough'. It was the cry of the grassroots revolutionary movement in Egypt, a powerful symbol of the 2011 Arab Spring uprisings.

Review: where you live can kill you

Non-fiction - Health Divides: Clare Bambra provides a good, easy-to-understand introduction to the major causes of health inequality in rich countries. One shocking example is Stockton-on-Tees, where life expectancy varies by 17 years between rich and poor parts of the town.

Lessons of Militant - vital for struggles today

Michael Crick's book 'Militant' was first published in 1984. Why has it now been re-issued 32 years later? For the very same reason that it was published in the first place: to provide ammunition for attacking the emerging left, writes Peter Taaffe.

Stay Voiceless: Manics' punk spirit is alive and well

Music review: Stay Voiceless: 'Those kids have no idea whatsoever of what went on at Stalingrad' is a song title that leaves you as curious as the name is long. You certainly take away more from it than the three minutes 32 seconds dose of punk rock you get.
