Modern Britain In Microcosm

JulieM points out this snapshot of modern life.

Yep, six kids disappear and it's a yawner, but don't call them insensitive: they've spiked the music concert. Isn't that just the perfect exemplar of what forty years of liberalism has done to Britain ? They'll let the innocent die through indolence and apathy, then weep buckets at the graveside.

To paraphrase Theodore Dalrymple, it looks like these people don't bear grudges - they can forgive themselves anything. All they really need is a bit of ostentatious emotionalism, and then everyone can 'move on'
