Rosen appointed Children's Laureate

Notable cool lefty Mike Rosen has become the new Children's Laureate. One of the reasons I like him is he says things like this;

"poems are things you can climb into and investigate"

"I would like to look at how the reading of poetry can be saved from the vice-like grip of the literacy strategy. "

"I'm more than happy to support the handing out of good books for free."

"I see my job as... being an ambassador for fun"

Top notch news. It's always to see good socialists getting on in the world - particularly when it's so well deserved.
