RIP Tony Benn
Tony Benn’s secret suffragette plaque in the Houses of Parliament, c. 1991
Tony Benn said in the House of Commons in 2001: “I have put up several plaques—quite illegally, without permission; I screwed them up myself. One was in the broom cupboard to commemorate Emily Wilding Davison, and another celebrated the people who fought for democracy and those who run the House. If one walks around this place, one sees statues of people, not one of whom believed in democracy, votes for women or anything else. We have to be sure that we are a workshop and not a museum”

RIP Tony Benn

Include Design 
The proposal by the UK government to introduce a new EBacc qualification in place of GCSEs will mean arts subjects are no longer recognised qualifications. This mindless myopia threatens the very future of the arts and will impact the creative economy in this country. If you feel as outraged as we do then get involved at the Include Design campaign. You can sign an online petition, write to your MP or publicise the campaign through Twitter using the hashtag #includedesign
