  John Tyndall (politician) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
John Hutchyns Tyndall (July 14, 1934 – July 19, 2005) was a far-right British nationalist politician best known for leading the National Front in the 1970s and for founding the British National Party in the 1980s.
In 1957, feeling that the League was not sufficiently active, he and John Bean left to form the National Labour Party.
The Labour Party prevented the use of this name, and in 1960 it merged with the White Defence League of Colin Jordan to form the old British National Party (BNP) which was led by John Bean.

John Berger, one of the most influential intellectuals of our time, is back in London for a month-long celebration of his work.
'John,' Nella tells me, while we sit down to a lunch he has prepared from ingredients bought that morning at the local market, 'is utterly unique.' Even if you had never read one of his books, you would not not have to spend too long in Berger's presence for this to become apparent.
There are those on both the left and the right who viewed Berger's move to rural France to immerse himself in peasant life as a kind of inverse social climbing, the epitome of a certain kind of posh lefty slumming.

His father was a Church of England clergyman, called upon to move from parish to parish, and Hurt lived until the age of 12 in the industrial countryside of the North, in a small village named Woodville surrounded by coal mines.
And, of course, there was The Elephant Man. To play John Merrick in David Lynch's fl and white masterpiece, Hurt rose at 4am, spent seven hours having his make-up applied, filmed until 10pm (consuming raw eggs and orange juice through a straw), then spent a further two hours having his make-up removed.
And finally, aside from that gem-studded CV and all his work for charity, John Hurt must be commended for his amused acceptance of one particular fact.

 The New York Review of Books: Homage to Philip Larkin
Just as he encouraged the misconception that he had produced a meager body of work, so too did Larkin seek to present himself before the public in the disguise of a bluff, no-nonsense Englishman who just happened to produce now and then, by happy accident, as it were, an exquisite small volume of poetry.
He complained to [Kingsley] Amis in 1943...that "all women are stupid beings" and remarked in 1983 that he'd recently accompanied Monica [Jones] to a hospital "staffed ENTIRELY by wogs, cheerful and incompetent."...His views on politics and class seemed to be pithily captured in a ditty he shared again with Amis.
Yet for anyone who has not yet read this wonderful poet, it might be best to begin not on those peaks, but with, for example, the tiny poem "Cut Grass," one of the most nearly perfect lyrics in the language, plangent with the sense of summer's loveliness and the finality of dusty death:

You will not recognise Ben Kingsley, who is the best Fagin I've seen - better than Lon Chaney in the silent film version and even better than Alec Guinness in the exquisite David Lean rendition.
Dickens purists may criticise Harwood and Polanski for the small but significant deviations from the novel they have made in their adaptation; some alterations are too subtle to be noticed by anyone who hasn't read Oliver Twist recently.
In the film, it is the Artful Dodger, not the cowardly Noah Claypole, whom Fagin assigns to shadow Nancy and who witnesses her betrayal - thus making the Dodger at least partially responsible for Sykes's murder of Nancy.
