Evelyn Waugh

I think the current TV adaption of Evelyn Waugh's 'Decline and Fall' is meant to ridicule the sort of Britain some hard Brexiteers want to get back to...as well as the shenaginans of some Tories past and present, and the level of intelligence in the current Tory Government.
The Decline and Fall
of us all.

Re: Evelyn Waugh

From the Evening Standard -

It’s relevant again – thanks to Brexit
A novel from 1928 might not immediately seem relevant, but director Guillem Morales saw a link to today’s society – especially in the political upheavals of Brexit.
“I found that it's a young man who goes through a society which is elitist, classist, xenophobic, racist, corrupt, amoral and I thought, ‘well, maybe society hasn't changed so much since then, so maybe it's not so dated’. Decline and Fall is about a generation ruining the next one,” he says.

Was anyone else shocked by last night's decapitation?

Re: Evelyn Waugh

I'd rather be a mutton-headed mugwump, than a bogbucket chump.

(Bogbucket is a term of 'endearment' in DECLINE AND FALL)
