The end is nigh?

 

Sir, – Growing up in the 1950s, I recall my grandfather declaring that the end of the world was nigh when coming across some disturbing signs of modernity in the news.

I wonder what he would have thought of the idea of paying €53 for a bottle of Chinese Cabernet blend? (Magazine, September 14th). – Yours, etc,
