A Nation for All Except Its Nationals

Programming note: Tonight, Monday, I'll be joining Tucker Carlson live across America at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific – with a rerun at 12 midnight Eastern. I hope you'll dial us up. ~One of the occupational hazards of this line of work is that at a certain point you've seen it all before. For example, not many people outside the United Kingdom retain any memory of Gordon Brown, Tony Blair's woeful and short-lived successor as prime minister. Mr Brown led the Labour Party to defeat in the 2010 election. Here's what I had to say about it at the time: The official "defining moment" of the campaign was Gordon Brown's unguarded post-photo-op dismissal of Gillian Duffy as a "bigoted woman." Mrs. Duffy, a plain-spoken working-class granny and ...

Steyn's Song of the Week

Think

WhatsApp

The passing of Aretha Franklin might not seem especially relevant to a weekly series mostly dedicated to songs from the golden age of American pop standards. But, in fact, several of her earliest singles were of numbers we've featured here, including "Rock-a-Bye Your Baby with a Dixie Melody" (Number 12 for Aretha on the Canadian charts in 1961), and "Try a Little Tenderness" (Number 100 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1962). As the daughter of the Reverend C L Franklin, one of the most famous preachers of his generations, she began her recording career with gospel, and then moved into jazz standards. She never stopped singing them. In fact, she was one of the last stars to tailor her set list to wheresoe'er she happened to be: Many years ago ...

A Walkabout That Wasn't

WhatsApp

Nicolas Roeg was born in London on August 15th 1928, and on this ninetieth birthday his luster is not quite what one might have expected a few decades back. It's eleven years since he directed his last feature film, and another twelve years since the one before that. It might simply be that there are other things he prefers to do with his time: I forget who it was who argued that the infrequency of novels by Thomas Pynchon (to whom we shall return) is due to nothing other than the improved quality of American television. Yet, notwithstanding the delights of whatever cable package Mr Roeg enjoys in London, it is a melancholy fact that he released more films between 1980 and 1986 than he has in the thirty-two years since. It was, in fact, ...
