The standout sentence of the weekend’s papers for me (before I gave up reading and took refuge in drink) was John Simpson’s assertion that we’re heading back to the 14th century – generally accepted as the worst ever century to be alive in the history of the world. So that’s famine, the Black Death, a new 100 Years War, a Peasant’s Revolt (count me in) and religious schism in Europe to look forward to. On the plus side it looks like a great time to be a warrior woman, or install some energy efficient central heating ; and narrative poetry is probably well overdue a comeback. This does, of course, have absolutely nothing to do with communications or new media, other than proving yet again what a truly fantastic resource Google is for those moments when you REALLY don’t want to start work on the accounts…
