I went to hear Nicholas Lezard speak about his book Nolympics at the RSA yesterday. I walked out. He was awful. The book is as bad; he misread the nation's mood. But he had one amusing comment which was that Jeremy Hunt, the DCMS Secretary of State, told Danny Boyle having watched a rehearsal of the Opening ceremony to take out the NHS beds scenes as he felt that as a whole "It wasn't Tory enough". Now we know.
