Justine Greening: “… But ultimately the problem that you saw in Bangladesh was one of bad building regulations…”
Victoria Coren: “That doesn’t explain why all the children were there. Why were the women taking their children to work, why was there not any childcare, why didn’t they have enough money to have somebody else to look after them… ”
David Starkey: “Because it’s Bangla-bloody-desh, woman!”

Today I revisited the route from Amersham, through Hyde Heath,Lee, and their adjacent hamlets then to Wendover, Aylesbury and onwards to the delightful villages of Quainton and Waddesdon. I stopped at end of the Chiltern part of the HS2 route at Twyford aprox. 30 miles from Birmingham.
I have not visted Aylesbury for about fifty years. Huge shock.
