Luisa Omielan's Politics for Bitches, review

In exchange, I'd have cut out some of the superfluous stand-up banter and scenes of Omielan mugging to camera in a taxi. Best of all were the sparks of real anger from Omielan, as when she discussed the inadequacy of a new luxury development's "affordable housing" scheme with an estate agent; if only they could have been given more time to catch alight.
