Last year I started to index my quote books, working through them at ten a day, which seemed a good way to break this difficult job down into bite-sized chunks. Slug eating for beginners. For reasons that escape me right now I stopped in October last year and the days turned to weeks turned to months. I'm back. Long-suffering readers will recall that I will blog the best quote of the ten each time. Imagine my joy when quote 666 turned out to be this beauty from the recently-late Tony Benn:
You can't wish away a historical movement with a couple of soundbites. There isn't a constituency 'Broadcasting House North' ... a system that doesn't meet people's needs will be rejected.
