Robert Colls on George Orwell’s changing political thinking

Just the most terrific talk on the progress of George Orwell’s political thinking throughout his life by Author and Professor Robert Colls.
Great insights.
On 1984: ‘IngSoc is English Socialism without the law, language, privacy & individualism’.
Orwell was a contrarian: and to give form to the point, Robert said the current Left’s problem was wanting to re-create an England that’s no longer allowed by the EU – and didn’t the audience bite!
I’ve bought the book.

The event was part of Bread & Roses produced by Five Leaves Bookshop.
Possibly the best talk of its kind I’ve ever been to.
