No Patrimony

Here’s the very excellent Frank Furedi who has this new piece in First Things and who, is of course, a regular contributor to the ecumenical and well-named Spiked. Now what is especially interesting about Frank is that he reminds me a great deal of Paul Hirst and another decent chap, Jerry Cohen. As the Guardian obituary says of Paul, he was “an evangelist of honesty and the enemy of cant”, especially towards that emanating from those ostensibly sharing his ideological outlook, i.e. the “regressive” Left. This is true of Frank as well: long may he continue.
