Just the most terrific talk on the progress of George Orwell’s political thinking throughout his life by Author and Professor Robert Colls.
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.
