Fair cop: “Woman, 53” political graffiti verdict

In the early hours of the Wednesday before the general election, a woman of 53 walked around Hastings writing political messages across the town using a set of wipe-clean blackboard pens. Within a relatively short period of time she had ‘chalked up’ 50 messages, before a passer-by spotted her writing on the shiny tiled walls of the Jerwood Gallery and reported her to the police. She was arrested whilst she was contemplating writing on the pub blackboards outside the London Trader. HOT’s Erica Smith went to court to find out more.

A totally alternative election night

As both politicians and impressarios know, things never go according to plan. Back in February, Blurt and Near Jazz Experience were set to share the stage at Kino-Teatr. Unfortunately Ted Milton – the man behind Blurt since 1979 – was ill and the gig was postponed until 8 June. Then Theresa May announced a general election. Erica Smith finds out how to escape election madness into a whole new world of musical madness.

Parliament or prison for our MP?

HOT’s Chris Coverdale, an anti-war activist and stickler for the law, believes Britain’s politicians and voters should take the country’s international undertakings on refraining from waging war seriously. Here he examines local MP Amber Rudd’s relevant voting record and asks whether we should re-elect Ms Rudd or send her and her colleagues to prison.

Thursday 4 May: vote, vote, vote…

Brenda from Bristol might have nailed the mood of the nation with her reaction to the news of the General Election – but don’t let that stop you from using your vote in the East Sussex County Council elections this Thursday, 4 May. Polling stations are open from 7am to 10pm. If you are on the electoral register, you don’t need to take your polling card with you, but you will need to give your name and address details. HOT’s Erica Smith takes a look at who is standing where.

Election ponderings

With the election fast approaching, I am puzzled that economic issues continue to be the priority and dominate the headlines rather than environmental matters. IF what we are being told is true regarding the state of this planet, vital resources and humanity’s future, then it seems to be a form of insanity not to make them a priority.
