CHAT ROOM - Jesse Foot (Christian, librarian, controversy, politics) June 2017
October 31, 2017 john cheek

Jesse hails from Cornwall and is a Christian who believes in courting controversy for the sake of the Gospel. He certainly did that when, as Librarian in Bodmin, he first arranged a shelf of books labelled "books you hate" and then added a shelf "books you would like to burn". He cheekily put a Bible on that shelf. That act got into the national newspapers and considerably increased local interest in the Bodmin library which was threatened with closure. Jesse Foot is a liberal politician at local level, and is related to a famous UK politician, Michael Foot who was MP for Plymouth Devonport, and became Leader of the UK Labour Opposition from 1980 to 1983. This interview is kindly facilitated by David Barnfield of "Life Stories"."
