Re: Martin Amis
I don't know where you got the idea that Kingsley Amis was left wing. I'm younger than you, Eric, and I remember Kingsley Amis well; he was always on television, the curmudgeonly, right wing old sod. In his early teens and early 20s he thought of himself as left wing, but as soon as he realised that the people he hated were left wingers rather than right wingers as he'd always thought, he switched his political position. The funny thing is, the older Martin Amis gets the more he resembles his Dad, both in appearance and in political views.
