Surely Glenda deserves a gong!


VANESSA REDGRAVE, 84, a former stalwart of the Workers Revolution­ary Party and life-long republican, was given a surprise damehood in the New Year honours list.

But why no damehood for the excellent Glenda Jackson? She’s a double Oscarwinne­r — one more than Redgrave — who had a second career as a Labour MP and government minister.

Jackson then returned to acting, winning a Tony award in 2018 for her Broadway role in Edward Albee’s Three Tall Women at the ripe young age of 82.
