Actor, author, playwright and theatre director Steven Berkoff leaps to the defence of Angelina Jolie
“Who is Angelina Jolie?” Matthew Parris feels obliged to “spit this out” in an article in The Times. Thus with his opening sentence he conveys only too clearly his contempt for this international movie star who has raised her voice in the defence of women who are not only savagely raped, but killed as just punishment to the poor losers. The victors would call it the spoils of war. “It seems”, he writes with just the slightest hint of sarcasm, that she’s against rapes in warfare as I’m sure we all are. Yes, we all are Mr Parris but whereas your small voice would hardly raise a ripple in the ocean of the world’s injustices, her voice and face will carry around the globe and give comfort and succour to millions. “Am I missing something?” you write with such faux innocence. Indeed you are. Conscience perhaps?
