I have just read an article entitled this on the BBC website. I live in what is supposed to be one of the most advanced countries in the world and every day I hear smug members of the political class telling me how good it is and how good it is going to be. When you see this sort of article you know that it is all lies, complete misinformation. A time for political change perhaps.
We were lucky in the draw for the free tickets to go to the recording of episode 7 of this series of the News Quiz, a BBC Radio 4 comedy. It was very funny. The two teams consisted of Jeremy Hardy and Bob Mills and Holly Walsh and Fred MacAulay. It took almost two hours to record it for a 30 minute broadcast. Definitely worth it.
