Fidget for England (via Monix)

Anglo-Aussie wit and raconteur Clive James amusingly skewers what he calls 'fidgeting' - the modern disease whereby everything has to be constantly renamed and rebranded. You can listen to it on BBC Radio 4 here.

James is a genuine polymath of intermittent brilliance, who has embraced the internet age with a premier league-quality website.

(His poems are a bit dodgy though).

I thought you would like it. My drive to church on Sunday mornings is brightened by the ten-minute 'A point of view' on BBC Radio 4. I love to hear opinions expressed well, even if I disagree with them. I prefer to listen to Clive James than to read him, perhaps his poetry sounds better than it looks?
