Snowflakes! 
I'm not sure how many shopping days there are to Christmas, but it's certainly the time of year to think of tinsel, festive parties, stocking the larder, theatre treats, colder weather and snowflakes. Ah yes, snowflakes, but not the chilly kind. It's the student kind I have been thinking of this week, with newspaper reports of their latest stupidity. You have probably seen that they want to ban applause.
 
It's too stressful for those of a timid disposition apparently. Already they have banned applause in student union meetings and have substituted 'jazz hands' – palms forward, fingers splayed at shoulder height, then shake. It's very Bob Fosse and ultra camp. But most importantly, especially to snowflakes, is that it's silent. It's happening in student meetings today, but will it be theatres tomorrow? It's another step in the direction of kowtowing to the mouse in the room, stooping to the weakest common denominator, and stifling any reaction which may threaten the self-imposed safe space of the cosseted snowflake. You can tell I despise them. I like applause; I like a display of enthusiasm; I even like a standing ovation when well earned. Stamp your feet and cheer if you feel so moved, or even boo when afronted, but please please not the soul destroying response of silence. Theatre, and I would hope student meetings too, should be challenging, exciting, uplifting and even entertaining, certainly deserving of a noisy round of applause. Thumbs down and three loud boos for contemptible snowflakes and their cocooned lifestyle.
