“The society which has abolished every kind of adventure makes its own abolition the only possible adventure.” Paris, May 1968

David Cameron, Robin Hood and synchronicity.

The number of people bored by the election compares only to the number who are bored of hearing others moan about being bored by it. Now Lord Snooty tell us that he wants people to "come together". Well Dave, I think that's a great thing to aspire to but you shouldn't feel disappointed if it doesn't happen every time.
Meanwhile the election was put into sharp perspective for me at least, in a rather unusual way today. Hidden in the Radio 4 schedule this afternoon was Great Lives in which prisoner's rights lawyer Clive Stafford Smith debated Robin Hood with medievalist Stephen Knight and the odious Mathew Paris. Wonderful stuff that is repeated on Friday night and will be on IPlayer soon.

Yup, great stuff. Clive Stafford Smith is a bit of a gem of a gent.
