You’ve Gotta Laugh….

Today on The Jeremy Vine Show (Radio 2) was a moment of such poignancy, such subtle beauty, that I knew the ELM readership had to share in it. On a feature discussing the capture of Bosnian Serb War Crimes Suspect Radovan Karadzic, we heard many appalling tales of the destruction caused in that terrible, almost forgotten war. It ended with a plaintive email from a listener who worked as an Aid Worker there, stating that he was haunted by the destruction to the area and how it ‘stole childhood from so many’.

Jeremy Vine then played Scouting for Girls. Without missing a beat.
