My hometown is a rather average sort of place- not a lot happens- a few movies have been filmed here, but other than that life carries on in its unremarkable kind of way. Pop down to the local shopping precinct, and huddled within the 60's brutalist architecture you'll find groups of the new young hip generation, and their offspring.
They get a bit of bad press, these unemployed youths and their hundreds of children, but I don't know why- after all, isn't there some statistic about how the population is getting older, and this is a 'bad thing'? These guys are trying to make a difference- they should be applauded!
This one’s in the latest Spectator magazine.
