Quotes of the week.

This week I came across three quotes which stick stick in my mind. The first two are from George Orwell’s novel ‘Burmese Days’ which I am re reading after twenty + years, and the third is from Peter Hitchens’s Mail on Sunday Blog. They’re connected only tenuously.


The British Empire is simply a device for giving trade monopolies to the English, or  rather gangs of Jews and Scotchmen.

    Orwell had a way with words – being uncomfortably aware of the stark contrasts between capitalism and communism. I can’t remember which famous politician it was who said if you showed him a leftie at 18, he’d show you a tory at 40. It’s the way of the world – and academics naturally seek utopia based on equality and the liberal distribution of other people’s wealth; but don’t ask them to accept the minimum wage.
