I do love a bit of ‘Thought for the Day’ on Radio 4.
A sleepless night over the thought of what Dave’n’Nick are planning to do to our already creaking overdraft and I’m told to ponder on the notion of simplicity. And the vicar is right; I was never one for consumerism anyway. Poor is cool these days, and very soon everyone will be growing their own rather than leaving it to a bunch of middle class planet-savers, largely because they won’t be able to do anything else. The new food market in Lewes will be buzzing with basket carrying veggie fans, driven to the sprouting and rooting rather than the lowing and bleating not because of any methane issues, but because we just can’t afford it.
Do you think Nick’n’Dave will actually enforce vegetarianism in this new age of austerity?
Bring it on; lamb is so last year.
