Opher’s Art

When I was a young man, in one of my obsessive creative phases, I did a lot of paintings. These are they:




Nuclear warhead




Spaced out in red


Spaced out in blue


Bedroom 1973


Dylan as a baby


Liz and Dylan


Are we well hung?


I thought I knew what I was doing


Sitting room 1973


Portrait of the artist as a young man


More sitting room 1973




The artist in a good light


Having a bad day


You know I don’t feel myself today!

New Tory Government more ideologically dangerous than Thatcher?

So extreme. They are deflecting attention away from their plans by using the smoke-screen of Brexit.

Opher's World

Thatcher was strident and divisive. She unleashed a huge divisive backlash.

Cameron is the wolf in sheep’s clothing.

If there is not sufficient opposition to this three pronged attack on democracy we will be looking effectively at a tyranny.

If the Tories control the news they control the minds.

If they bankrupt the opposition they have no opposition.

If they castrate the unions the bosses can impose what they like on ordinary working people.

If we look back through history from the Magna Carta, through the chartists, Swing riots, suffragettes, Peterloo massacre, the enclosures, slavery, Luddites, Diggers and union movement, we see that every right, every freedom, every vote, every improvement in pay and conditions has had to be fought for and paid for with blood. Many thousands of people died in order for us to have the freedoms we enjoy.

‘Find the cost of freedom buried in the ground’.
