Know Your Enemy

"It’s this combination of shameless avariciousness and a belief in the drizzle-down of oily emolument from the top to the bottom that makes Oliver the personification of contemporary Britain ... Needless to say, Oliver sticks in my craw and I’d walk a cunty mile to avoid him and all his works."
