A colleague today informs me, somewhat incredulously, that her daughter's first lesson at secondary school is Doublethinking.
I cried aloud in horror. It's all coming true, just 25 years later than Orwell predicted!
To my great relief, it turned out that I had simply failed to hear a space between the words. The lesson is, in fact, double Thinking.
This still sounds sinister, but in a 2009 kind of way, rather than a 1984 kind of way.
