Time to go

Friday, 2 May 2008

After yesterday’s election results it’s time to think seriously about emigrating.

The country has taken on a virulently anti-intellectual tone. Well, Britain always was an anti-intellectual kind of place – witness the sneering of its academic establishment at the new philosophical thinking of the 1970s that it couldn’t understand, remember the Colin McCabe Affair? – but it’s getting worse again, as it did in the 1980s. Everything that’s crass about the country can be traced back to the 1980s and now it looks likely to happen again under the new rising star, a vacuous, braying, public school yahoo whose mummy and daddy could afford buy him patronage.

I’m looking for somewhere that appreciates the intellect. Any suggestions?
