New wave

  • Comment

I am indebted to architectabout-Shoreditch Tim Pyne for alerting me to a new environmental hazard, following his scrutiny of a news item in the Guardian. Apparently, because of population-control policy in China, it will soon have more than 100 million only-child teenagers.

Just suppose, Pyne ponders, they all slam their bedroom doors at the same time, shouting the Chinese for 'whatever'. He asks: 'Am I right in thinking this will cause a tidal wave which will swamp the USA?' He helpfully answers his own worst fears: 'If so, what are we all worrying about?'
