I believe Oliver used to live in quite a rough area of South London, where he was once mugged. Personally I reckon he ought to have learnt kick-boxing at that point, but as far as I know, he thinks it is more important to address the deeper malaises inherent in our society etc.

Do you think that your Noo Yawk Wimmin are on the whole, how shall I put it, intellectually nimble? A hae ma doots.

Alas, Hilary, most of 'Souf' London is rough these days but even so, I suspect that Oliver's existence was somewhat cushioned in his 'youf' (about which I know nothing), and certainly so in his adult life spent (and good for him!) earning serious money in the City. What I was trying to imply was that there exists a swathe of middle-class, liberals whose ideology, such as unrestrained immigration and multi-culturalism, has wreaked devastation on city suburbs and the homogenous societies that used to live and work there. They are cushioned from the effects that they have caused.

'DM', unfortunately these particular 'wimmin' give every appearance of being exceedingly good at what they do in the various exchanges of the world, activities that are as mysterious to me as quantum physics. They are frighteningly good at what they do, it's just that they tell us about it in a nasal, high-speed, dentist's drill delivery that makes your teeth ache! Actually, I rather like the 'Noo Yawk' accent, but only in men. If only the American stock exchange would shift to California, all would be well.

By the way, on the subject of stock exchanges, if you haven't done so already - SELL!
