Timely tirade

October 20, 2011

At last! An angry - and how - tirade against the millionaire buffoons who lead this wretched, undemocratic government, safe and secure in the knowledge that their privileged backgrounds and private wealth will cushion them and their City chums from the effects of their policies ("Economical with the actualité", 6 October). I agree with Fred Inglis: the academy must shake off its "amiable passivity" and "take action designed for victory".
