The Wisdom Of The Chattering Classes.

On 'Any Questions' they were discussing Control Orders, this exchange between James Delingpole and Jeanette Winterson, at around 23 minutes in, just about sums up the intellectual sophistication of the chattering classes.

James Delingpole: I don't believe that the answer is simmply bombarding these people with love. The fact is Jihadists are committed to destroying our way of life....

Jeanette Winterson: And so is George Bush!

I heard that. Don't normally listen but I was driving home from poor grinders, my work and Sainsbury's, and Ocean FM's School Day's early 80s favourites played something I didn't like. Flicked over and this was on. Didn't know who the eeh by gum woman was, still don't really, but blimey she talked some guff. Arrived home just as this dopey bomb was dropped. Was un-nerved by the reaction too. Nutters.

The applause was the worrying thing. I suppose the fact that it took place at a literary festival might explain that though, the audience might have come straight from the Hamas tent.

Well George double yer, is hardly known for his restrained and controled reactions. It is the very wars he has fought which have created the suicide bombers and it us who have to enjoy the fallout.
