Great quote via Brian Micklethwait, on Samizdata:-
My dad was a newsagent, I went to state school, I’m Asian, I work in the city and I earn loads of money. I do it so my parents and future children can have something close to the only kind of life Toynbee has ever known. Me explain my position? How about she explains her right to speak for the poor?
– Peter Hoskin singles out that comment by Raj Chande on an excerpt from Polly Toynbee and David Walker’s book entitled Unjust Rewards
AND HERE is a great aside by The Remittance Man, about socialism, Polly Toynbee, and camel trains….of all things! I wish I had either the ability, or the time, to compose essays, be they ever so short, like his.
