Twitcher in the Swamp

By - Peter Marren

"The whole nation, we hear, is in a ferment about who is to be the Top Brit of all time. Will it be Michael Crawford or Princess Di? Or perhaps it will be John Lennon, whose place in the Top Ten rests, surprisingly, not on Strawberry Fields or even Imagine, but in the contention that 'he really believed in peace'. In true modern Brit style, the BBC presents all this not as a relaxed discussion over a port or three, but as a gesticulating mob shouting at one another and waving their fists."
