A tribute to John le Carré

John le Carré, one of the greatest English novelists who wrote about the Cold War and later, complex geopolitics after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, died on December 12. A former British intelligence officer himself, le Carré (his real name was David Cornwell) drew upon his experience to create a world inhabited by ‘spies’, ‘moles’, ‘double agents’, ‘pavement artists’, ‘lamplighters’ among others. But what made his spy thrillers different from others, particularly the James Bond variety, was that this world was riven with moral ambiguities, uncertainties, betrayals. Le Carré’s spies weren’t glamorous, they were tired and often made compromises in a fast-changing post-War world. Ace Hindi film screenwriter Anjum Rajabali tells us how le Carré influenced him

Donald Trump Baby Blimp Enters Museum of London Collection

The Trump Baby Blimp has been “consigned to history” after being acquired by the Museum of London. The giant inflatable depicts US President Donald Trump as a baby with a nappy and mobile phone. The balloon first took to the skies over Westminster during Trump’s state visit to the UK in 2018. The 20ft effigy has since travelled to protests in France, Ireland, Argentina and various locations across the United States. It has now found a “final resting place” at the Museum of London, where it will be conserved and potentially displayed as part of the museum’s protest collection. Report by Avagninag.
