New post The Graun on Britten: political idiots hail a political idiot


The sherry "socialist" craps all over a great man! I didn’t agree with Britten on many things, & hated most of his folksong arrangements, but not only are Peter Grimes & Billy Budd great music but they are also superb humane statements about the human condition.

It’s good when idiots display their idiocy so openly because it helps us distinguish between right and wrong, between fair comment and the howling of jackals on their stinking dunghill.
