Writing from July 2011

Metaphorical warehouses

Despite not being in education, or having children in education, I still enjoy the rhythm of the academic year. It seems much better to end a year with a long summer holiday (in the northern hemisphere at least) rather than a brief cold Christmas break. So this end-of-year seems a good opportunity to summarise what I’ve been up to for the past twelve months or so.

They ate the money

This lengthy paragraph from John Lanchester’s article about Greece in the London Review of Books has stuck with me more than most. It sums up how ludicrous the Conservatives’ “We’re all in this together” slogan is. (Wow, they sell t-shirts with that on?!)
