Germaine Greer on Hodge and the Proms

March 31, 2008

I only just read this but it made me smile and I think it’s spot on.

Key quotes:

“There are so few black people at the Proms because they would rather be somewhere else.”

and:

“If what the government wants is to bring people together, a usable and affordable rail system would be more effective than Hodge’s ill-considered attempt to guilt-trip the BBC into buggering up the Proms.”
