Thursday is National Poetry Day

Poetry, for me, is creativity at its best, and I shall be making a big effort to get to at least one ‘poetry’ event on Thursday.

Everyday this week, Jeremy Vine (BBC Radio 2, 12-2pm) is doing a ‘poetry’ slot, choosing a different theme each day and featuring guest poets.

I love his Mr Gee who says writing a poem is ‘easier than baking a cake’!  Here’s Mr Gee’s short film of a step-by-step poetry/making a cake masterclass – brilliant!

So this is not scientific at all. But in a couple of hours there have been more than 2000 replies and overwhelmingly they say @RoryStewartUK won the #C4Debate

What a cosy night in Dolly the Caddy Camper @bridgevilla campsite on the riverside @wallingford...friendly visitors and glorious riverside trees 🌲 🦆#treehugging #trees #vanlife #campervan #vwcamper


.@RoryStewartUK again absolutely kills the others by actually sounding as though he is fallible. Whether it is sincere or a performance it is working. @sajidjavid also sounds human by talking about getting things wrong as a dad #c4debate
