And now for something completely different

On holiday I found a book left behind by a past holidaying person. It was the sort of book you read in a holiday bach on a wet day- not one you would normally give a second glance.

The book was 'A Narrow Street' by Elliot Paul and is a tale of life in Paris during the 1920's & 30's.

I have learnt a lot about the French from reading this. You can see how a nation is ground down into a bunch of cheese-eating surrender monkeys- by a government(s) out of control and with a vast and incompetent bureaucracy.

Sound like somewhere we all know?

Somewhere where every year 'Atlas Shrugged' sounds less like fiction...
