In Defence of an Immoderate Life

By | July 11th, 2016|LRO 42|

KRING-LRO: ‘Restlessness’ and – surprisingly – ‘in defense of an immoderate life’: this title requires clarification.

In different centuries and eras, London has given refuge to the Huguenots, the Jews, the Bangladeshis and the Russian Oligarchs – the latter, the most persecuted group of them all, because they persecute each other. Asylum seekers or economic migrants, why do they choose London? Is it because they do not know that in London [...]
