    Amazing paintings… but I can see why Hogarth’s main medium was line and print. I guess the editorial elements are better suited to something that might appear in a newspaper, to raise an issue.

    I wish you well at the hustings tonight. I would love to be there but the distance is too great. It will be interesting to know if any candidate says that British Land should not be impeded in the interests of the efficient working of the market. I can think of a couple of parties who might think as much but probably won’t say it for fear of losing votes (or being lynched). Always love Hogarth!
