My stomach has endured the full scope of awful foods this planet has to offer Trying adventurous food is a big part of travelling, but India, where I'm travelling through now, has more problems with [food] hygiene than anywhere else in the world. It's a cultural problem, as eating meat is a rarity in rural areas, so they treat it like a vegetable, keeping it in a cupboard. So when the occasional Westerner passes through, by the time it's pulled out, it's been in there for a few months. When travelling across poorer parts of India now, I try to survive off rice and dahl.

This August sees a major revival in the Olivier of his 1959 play, The Kitchen. First off, though, there's Dominic Cooke's electric and intensely touching revival of Chicken Soup with Barley, Wesker's 1958 drama that has the distinction of being one of the very few plays in English that offers an empathetic treatment of a communist family. We follow the Jewish Kahn clan in scenes that offer snapshots of the intertwined disintegration of an ideology and the unravelling of their human relationships.

I've always been very clear on that," Andrew Lansley told the House. It was so untrue. He's never very clear, not about anything. He knows too much. He wants us to know he knows too much. He gives us the background, the foreground, the underground to every question.
