3.0 out of 5 stars Simon Jenkins dithers, ducks and dives
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 January 2021
I loved this breakneck gallop through London’s history with its cornucopia of trivia until the author inserted a Beecher’s Brook on page 29. As a vocal Remainer, Jenkins has slowly edged away from the “losing” side - by 2017 he declared himself “a Remainer, but only just” and last year he delivered a resounding kick in the teeth to thé EU regarding its failure to pull together over Covid. So WHY oh WHY drag article 42 of the Magna Carta into his argument in favour of a “single market” for Europe? There WAS no Europe as a commercial concept. It quite spoiled my enjoyment of an excellent cup of Lapsang Souchong and an otherwise entertaining read.
