    did not get to see his supposed Empire booster side until later... and I get that he was not a one dimensional jingoistic Queen and Country man and that he had a more nuanced take on things that also included reproaches for that side of the British world view...

    I do enjoy all of his work and find his voice and stories/ poems to be evocative and thought provoking tool... Recessional and so many more of his works are both powerful and the source of a lot of argument over his meaning

    Pogo & Murphy's Law, every time. Also "Trust but verify" - St. Ronnie (hah...)
