Lionel Shriver talks to Allison Pearson: ‚The British people have never more profoundly disappointed me‘

Speaking to The Telegraph’s Planet Normal podcast – which you can listen to on the audio player above – Shriver told podcast host and Telegraph columnist Allison Pearson she was „dismayed“ with the way Britons have stayed at home without questioning government strategy.

„The British people have never more profoundly disappointed me. It seems so un-British to say, alright then I’ll just roll over and I’ll stay home. I think part of it was being able to feed into the Blitz narrative,“ she said. „The bizarre attachment to being confined to your homes and not making a living and relying on the government…I’m just dismayed.“
