This morning I received an e-mail from the producer of yesterday's Start the Week, apologizing, among the thanks because the edited version of the programme, due to be broadcast yesterday evening was cancelled to leave room for an old interview with Eric Hobsbawm. How ironic, I replied, that a programme that was at least partly about the crimes and horrors of Communism should give way to one about a life-long apologist for it.

  1. I guarantee the irony would have been completely missed by the producer...or whomever.
