Alan Bennett: The Lady In The Van

"The story told by this film took place 40 and more years ago and Miss Shepherd is long since dead. She was difficult and eccentric but above all she was poor.

"And these days particularly the poor don't get much of a look in. Poverty is a moral failing today as it was under the Tudors.

"If the film has a point, it's about fairness and tolerance and however begrudgingly helping the less fortunate, who are not well thought of these days.

"And now likely to be even less so."
