what if Shakespeare was alive now

What if Shakespeare was alive  now?

What would he say about the brutal austerity cuts to our Library, Museums, Galleries?

Perhaps he might have re-drafted his St Crispins day speech to help rally the troops (that's me and you out there in social media land) for the 5th November demo?

Anyway, the climax to the re-drafted St Crispins speech may go something like this?

"From this day to the ending of the world,

But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers & sisters

For he or she to-day that sheds his or her blood, sweat and tears with me

Shall be my brother or sister be he or her ne'er so vile,

This day shall gentle his or her condition;

And men or women now a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,

And hold their courage cheap whiles any speaks

That marched with us upon 5th November day."

Now tell me how you can possibly not grab a book and get yourself ready to take part in the marvellous, the spectacular, the magnificent, the inspirational, entertaining, creative demonstration ever.

See you all tomorrow
