In praise of Polly Toynbee

Posted on

Polly Toynbee is willing to stick her neck out. That's why I admire her. I admire her motives. And courage.

And of course she gets it wrong sometimes. We all do. Prediction is very, difficult, especially if it's about the future as Nils Bohr, the nobel physicist, once said.

But she carries on, doggedly, determinedly, and correctly, because she believes in justice.

This mornings Guardian article is a great example of her getting things right. Please read it. She blows Osborne apart.
