I will never get back the hour I spent on Saturday night watching Jimmy's Hall, the latest film by legendary director Ken Loach. This particular punter walked before the end of the moving and inspiring portrait of Irish communist and activist Jimmy Gralton and his battles with the church -- represented by Bishop "Kicking him up the arse" Brennan from Father Ted. One expects to make an occasional bad film choice. But it's hard not to blame the Guardian for publishing an online "review" of this pedantic bit of socialist realism that it turns out was paid for by the film's production company.
Turn to page 18 of Britain's first and only concise, quality newspaper and rejoice. Our own Sara Malm, editor of the Medwire, has written the column reserved for winners of the iWriters competition. Sara's column is called 'It's a wonderful feeling to scorn the beautiful.' It is an acute, compelling and stylish account of one student's reaction to the release from jail in Perugia of Amanda "Foxy Knoxy" Knox. It is additionally gratifying to see below Sara's byline the description: 'The writer is studying Journalism and the News Industry at the University of Kent.' To read more you will have to get a copy of the i. At twenty pence it is a tiny price to pay to join in celebrating such a tremendous achievement. Huge congratulations, Sara. I'm sure it is the first of many columns for national newspapers.
