Rarely have I read a more insightful article than this one from Libbey Purves, writing today (25th August 2008) in The Time. Read it here. It explains, in a clear, concise, unable to quibble way, just what is wrong with not just Blairs’ Britain but the modern Europe of today. I’m not even going to comment on it, she just… pins it down 100%.
The Times has now made available online back issues for the last 200 years. http://archive.timesonline.co.uk/tol/archive/ Amazing and fascinating!
