The French village where my father's uncle was arrested in Jan 1944, before being handed over to the Nazis, is going to commemorate him on May 8 by naming the local park after him: Parc Martin Rozen. Many of us in the family will be there.

What do you think of Lionel Shriver's article @FraserNelson ?
Do you think the phrase in the article 'surrender without a shot being fired' is in any way inflammatory? Might it not suggest or hint that people could or even should take up arms to prevent further 'surrender' of 'territory'? @FraserNelson
Do you think, Fraser, that there are people who have committed no crime, who've come to the UK to work, have worked hard for decades, or working right now, who might feel unfairly threatened by such an article? @FraserNelson

I propose an Olympics for the over-70s (further sections for over-80s, -90s, 100s).
To avoid heart attacks and other forms of dropping dead, the sports would be eg toe-nail cutting, best dishwasher loading, memorising shopping lists, stone-paper-scissors, TV switcher use etc.
How about 'floating' instead of swimming?

1/ To my mind, what's significant about Williamson and Latin is that he has intervened in the languages-in-secondary-schools debate with the mention of just one language - Latin - in a situation where modern langs are downgraded at univs, not compulsory at GCSE.
2/ The idea that offering Latin to state school students will combat the elitism of private education rests on the idea that imitating private education will do the job. Many people here suggest that getting class sizes down to the sizes in private education would be better.
3/ We have to ask why out of all languages did Williamson select Latin.? Of course it's a 'foundation' language and is the root of all 'Romance' languages but there are others including the foundation language of English - Old English (formerly known as Anglo-Saxon).
