The New Reality
Raymond Williams, the Welsh critic whose lectures I was once privileged to attend (free) as a student in England, wrote in Culture and Society (1958) these words I have tattooed on my heart:
“There are ideas and ways of thinking with the seeds of life in them, and there are others…with the seeds of a general death”
That is all you know in Scotland, and all you need to know.
Elsewhere, judging by the papers on Sunday 14th, there may be some catching up to do.
