"What’s wonderful about being my age is having to face your prejudices.

I had no idea how big Greenbelt was.
I had no idea how organised it was;

how free it was;
how joyful it was.
And I had no idea that there was such a
strong activist, trade justice plank in its platform.

It’s really hard, when you have had your antennae up for most of these
movements, to have completely ignored it. I have fallen for the zeitgeist
that says anybody who has a religious inclination has no sense of rationale
or intellectual understanding and therefore should be dismissed.

I am cheering the Greenbelt festival from the top of every bloody
…for me, it’s like a heartbeat.
And it’s youth.
I’m ashamed of my
bloody prejudices,
but I’m delighted to be a convert.
I find it wonderful.”
