I am sorry but I am on holiday and not keeping track of the blog very well. Things are going to be hit and run until I sort my myself out. Meanwhile, here’s the magisterial eloquence of CN Adichie as she gives the first of the four Reith lectures for the year. Her theme was freedom of expression and she brings a thoughtfulness and authority to the subject that seems beyond many others in the west. Happily, Adichie also infuriates woke dullards like Zoe Williams who presume they can go toe-to-toe with the greats. Enjoy!
