Not This Tide

If I were ITV (hat tip Nick Cohen), I'd say bloody well done or something like that to David Haig. ITV's My Boy Jack "handle[d] the complexity of war" better that certain journalists we know. I'd take Nick's criticism of the play as a "pleasingly simple morality tale" if a) he'd seen it in any form or b) he'd ever written anything other than simple 'moral superiority' tales himself. Haig and Radcliffe were particularly good.

Oh. FWIW, I thought it was basically bollocks. Totally predictable from beginning to end ("would you like me to read you a story" - I guess we all saw that coming).

(The only bit of tension provided by the remote possibility that Samantha Jones from Sex and the City might get it on with the General Staff. ... sorry, I'll get my coat.)
