Another local art feature for you this month. Squink lives and works just outside Sheffield and is best known for his custom Dunny action figurines, which he is able to inject with a stunning amount of personality for a three-inch chunk of vinyl. Personally, I can’t get enough of his paintings either. Both are on show here for your salivation.

After a hiatus of some months, Doug Pyper has written us a piece about Wikileaks and the Communist Party of China. You might remember his Democracy Dies Behind Closed Doors article or, even further back, his piece about cannabis reclassification. A great writer and we’re happy to have him back.

We also have part two of our interview with award-winning journalist George Monbiot, which is well worth a read if you want to get up to speed with the impending cuts and what you can do to oppose them. With that in mind – get down to the protests against the Lib-Dems in the city centre on 11th & 12th March.
