Friday’s Piece

“….one view of the role of the ‘Establishment’….is that it creates a closed, self-contained circle which favours hereditary amateurs against self-made professionals, produces ‘old-boy’ agreements between banks and businesses, and acts as a drag on ambition and dynamic.”

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

John Lentell

19th January, 1970
