Saturday’s Piece

“I have not thought it necessary to reiterate that I consider Britain the most civilised and humane country, and the happiest to live in, and I have not dwelt on the long traditions of democracy, and the tolerance and humanity of most British institutions, which Englishmen easily forget and which writing this book has brought home to me.”

(From Anatomy of Britain by Anthony Sampson, 1926 – 2004)

John Lentell

26th April, 1969
