Quote of the day 20th July 2023

  "Our obsession with the trivial is symptomatic of an unhelpful pessimism, a reluctance to believe we are a country worth taking seriously. We no longer believe that our problems can be confronted, or that a British government minister might count as an important person. None of these things are true. Sometimes seriousness is a form of optimism. We could do with more of it."

Hat tip to former North West MEP Sajjad Karim who drew my attention to the article.)
