Radio 2 has a series about "what makes us human" in which guest speakers talk about the nature of humanity.
Simon Weston was on today and if you have a few mins it's worth listening to on the bbc iplayer thingy.
A while back they had Brian May on and guess what he went on about?.... bloody badgers.
Simon Weston has more wisdom and humanity in the finger they cut off (listen to the program) than May would ever have.
We still have some Quality people in this country.
