My friend Patrick is a pretty big Guardian UK reader and sent this article my way.
While I do find it interesting that the former Blur bassist is now a dairy farmer and cheese-maker (I am especially impressed at his perspective on touring with the band: “I always liked to keep an eye on the cheese situation at large when I was on the move and for many years saw touring with the band merely as an excuse to travel the world tracking and eating obscure types of cheese.”), what impressed me most about this article is the extreme Britishness. Just read it! Never has so much scorn been so politely applied to one subject. Well done Marina Hyde!
