If she does win, it looks like she may be part of a minority government, as according to the last polls, that I saw here in the U.S., the Conservatives were slated to take the majority of the seats in Parliament.

It is the British election today so I just voted for Glenda.  I got a kick from doing it- maybe I shuld have kept the ballot paper, but that would defeat the purpose...

She has a small majority of 500 votes to defend, so she will be lucky to get through.  We will see in a few hours.

Plus Salome, The Secret Life of Arnold Bax (Ken's best acting role and Glenda's last acting role), The Boyfriend, The Music Lovers...


You are right. I had forgotten about "Salome," after I had posted my reply. Then seeing your reply, I see that I had forgotten so many of the other films she had made with Ken.
I guess that "Women in Love" and "Rainbow" stand out from her other roles for me, and why, I just don't know.

Ask her how it was to work with Ken, as she made at least two films with him, "Rainbow" and "Women in Love?"

I wonder if she's read Ken's articles in the Times?

She's got a tough election this year...and Tamsin Omond doesn't help.

In Britain every so often the political boundaries are changed, to take account of moving populations.  This means that my local MP is now... Glenda Jackson.  I just got a leaflet from her (well from her party) showing her standing down the road from me.

I hope she comes canvassing. What questions can I ask her?

I hope she wins the next election, shortly.
