Are You Serious, Bro?

I enjoyed this article in The Times in which Daniel Finkelstein affectionately, yet ruthlessly, demolishes an attack on a 'totalitarian' Tory Party launched by the award-winning playwright Alan Bennett, in the pages of The Guardian newspaper.

Clearly a big fan of Bennet's work, Finkelstein doesn't shirk from exposing the contradictions and hypocrisy of the acclaimed author's flip-flopping arguments, but he does so with humour and intelligence instead of resorting to abuse or angry personal attacks. 


Are these seriously your views, Mr Bennett?
