Quote Of The Week 29

Not from any one person this week, but about people who generally grace our headlines and speak to us every Thursday by a very dead author:

Political language – and with variations this is true of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists – is designed to make lies sound truthful, murder respectable and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind” – George Orwell

Oh that last part cracks me up – appearance of solidity to pure wind… What a fitting description for Colm Imbert when he speaks.

My good manners escaped me a bit here… Happy 90th birthday to Nelson Mandela!
