Sunday Write-Up – July 2015 (Better late than never!)

Simon was really getting into his stride. His knack for pulling people to pieces seemed to have have improved since his last talk. I say ‘improved’ but it’s probably not an improvement to his audience. Simon seemed to forget that these people paid his wages. His talks were quite renowned for giving his audience that weird feeling, that although his thoughts were probably correct they were not expressed with any sense of sympathy.

It appeared that his need to be provocative over rode his respect for the very people that came to listen to him. Saying that, they still come in their droves to hear him. Even the frequent misquotes, such as “… the might Oak grows from a tiny acorn …” and his misplaced references to Confucious, do not deter them.
