5.0 out of 5 stars Opinionated, pithy and highly intelligent, 10 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Museum Without Walls (Hardcover)
Excellent polemic pieces about much of what is wrong with our urban/built environment, and by extension our society. Highly readable, although the film scripts are clearly not a substitute for watching the films themselves. There are few people writing with this level of intelligence and insight more's the shame. Any of you thinking you were in the frame for leadership of the Hate Blair and New Labour campaign had better move over and make room.

M. O'Neill says:
By all means criticise Blair (although there is plenty to condemn too in the philistinism of the 'get rich quick, trash the planning laws' of the present government) but Meade no reason to level vile abuse at Mrs Blair who as I recall never sat round a cabinet table during her husband's time in office. The 'gurning hag' comment is childish and unworthy. Do we judge character and worth by facial demeanor? if we did what would we make of the bloated countenance of Mr Meade? A shapeless bag of half digested porridge maybe? Or a blotchy bladder of whey pinioned by self-consciously fashionably unfashionable spectacles perhaps? It might be fun being rude about people you do not know anything about, the stuff about them that really matters. But a truly gifted writer should rise above this petulant vileness. I hope you read these words that you wrote Jonathan and blush deeply. I bought your book as an act of solidarity with a person who I thought was a gifted commentator on what 'they' call the 'built environment' not for silly attempts to be controversial, or to read evidence of your lack of courtesy. These few ungracious words diminish their author and even in small measure devalue his reputation as a mature commentator. I think less of you now Jonathan for reading them.Reading the rest of your book will be much less pleasurable than it might have been.
