JK Rowling Rules the Universe
Rowling just published a new masterpiece for the Times Online about why their kinder, gentler approach to single parent voters hovers ri-i-i-ight between ignorant and insulting.
The editorial begins calm and scientific, but by the second page exhibits the most delicious, literate, barely-suppressed rage:
Suggestions that Mr Cameron seems oblivious to how poor people actually live, think and behave seem to provoke accusations of class warfare. Let me therefore state, for the record, that I do not think it any more his fault that he spent his adolescence in the white tie and tails of Eton than that I spent the almost identical period in the ghastly brown-and-yellow stylings of Wyedean Comprehensive. I simply want to know that aspiring prime ministers have taken the trouble to educate themselves about the lives of all kinds of Britons, not only the sort that send messages with banknotes.
Ahhh. Read it read it read it all right here.
