The debt, the economy, global warming - when was the last time a generation could say that they were leaving the world worse off than they themselves inherited it? If you were born between 1950-1970, you are the product of the ‘greatest generation’ that defeated fascism, created peace in Europe, and started the biggest economy boom in the history of the world.

I have a distinct weakness for nonsense poems set to 20th century English classical music read by actors with good voices and diction. In this case Jeremy Irons reading from Edith Sitwell’s Facade. ( I used to have these on tape, with Alec Guinness reading them as well) Now I think I’ll just go and rewatch Brideshead.
