This photo was taken outside the Red Lion pub, Westminster, where I was reading my satirical short story ‘The Holborn Cenotaph’ as part of The Cornelius Foundation’s ART of Conversation Supper Club on art and politics. Without my performing it from the lectern outside number 10 Downing Street, I think this may be about as close to the seat of power (and certainly to Lutyens’s original) as ‘The Holborn Cenotaph’ will get.

Incidentally, the Red Lion’s steak and stilton pie, with chips, cabbage and gravy was pretty good, too.
