All louts together. Rolling in the cultural gutter with the BBC

8th September 2015 0

Isn’t it strange, unexpected and tragic, that the BBC, that great institution which got us through the war and once fearlessly introduced its listeners to high culture has been one of the chief agencies for British decline.

In the Criminal Justice Statistics Quarterly for March 2014, one table tells us that in the year … [Read on]
