The Long Firm

Those watching TV in the UK. On BBC2 at 9pm there is a dramatisation of a truly excellent novel: The Long Firm by Jake Arnott.

It's about sex, gangsters, money and entertainment; about how Britain changed into a new sort of place in the sixties. The 'Long Firm' is a sort of con, the aristocracy, the Tory Party, a sexual innuendo, the criminal subculture (at least). I don't know what the drama will be like, but the book is superb (apart from the last couple of chapters, which suck).

    I see Gove has backed down on climate change and it's back in the curriculum again.
