One thought on “Nice

  1. My favourite moment from the reporting of Recent Events was an interview with a very eloquent Arab journalist, in which the BBC man asked him whether what had been happening reminded him of any similar occurrences in Europe – clearly expecting the answer “1989”.

    The man thought for a moment, and then replied, “I suppose the obvious parallel would be 1848.”

    I don’t know why this made me laugh, but make me laugh it did.
