    Right, the disavowal of feminism going hand in hand with high achievement and gaining power in a mans world

    perfect thread structure.

    starts with a bit of banter, evolves seamlessly into pretentious theorising, we produce something fairly cohesive together and then we muck around afterwards like getting our dessert after eating our greens.

    Plus a brief diversion where Craner is smeared and gets vexed.

    You can see that here with the harking back to world pre 1960s. The rat pack suits with the narrow black ties. The side parted hair for men and the lopsided, would be rakish grin. You can see it in the tweed jackets which hark back to an aristocratic society which failed to survive the 20th century. Grouse moors and butlers. It's a kind of play acting that takes its cues not from a lived and living sustained tradition but from the entertainment industry. Period costume dramas. Mad Men. I'm very very surprised Oliver is susceptible to this as it is a serious lapse of taste.
    this is the "people of talent"/"people of colour" of dissensus.
