The plight of families facing eviction from Dale Farm traveller site will be raised by three actresses on a Paris theatre stage.Wha..?
Kika Markham, widow of Four Weddings and a Funeral actor Corin Redgrave, Anna Carteret, 68, police inspector Kate Longton in Eighties cop show Juliet Bravo, and Argentinian actress Stella Maris, will take part in a special show.Yes, I've heard about those 'special shows' you can see in Paris! I bet there'll be a packed house for...
Kika said they hoped to give a repeat performance of the show in south Essex, in support of the travellers.Well, I bet that'll be a real show-stopper...
She said: “We are doing a performance on the persecution faced by Roma people in France, in Europe, as well as at Dale Farm.
“We will talk about Dale Farm, video footage of evictions will be played as well as newspaper reports read out.
“I will read out Corin’s speech, when he had a heart attack in Basildon.”
"At Dale Farm, the people have not been allowed to settle after they bought their own land."Well, no, sweetie, owning the land is only part of the necessary legal hurdles; it's planning permission that is needed, and that's what they haven't got.
And aren't going to get.
