Tom Harris, Labour MP, in a recent post discusses, in rather a convoluted piece of writing; Bond films, Doctor Who and Star Trek.
He ends his post, entitled 'The Tyranny Of Continuity', with the following:
"Continuity is important, of course, but what’s the point of trying to maintain it over decades? Such a requirement would utterly stifle creativity."
As an indictment on (a) the present government and (b) that a sense of 'creativity' is what Britain needs - one can only summarise by repeating the old adage 'Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings.........'
