Say it ain’t so.

Older son plays his new guitar in a Birmingham high street. Favourably received in the main, he collects £18 in his equally new guitar case.

The sole conscientious objector, he tells me on the ‘phone later, is a gentleman of Arabic origin who rants at him in a foreign tongue for a few moments, shakes a fist and nods contemptuously in the direction of the lad’s musical earnings, before wandering off.

I hope he was either drunk, disturbed, or simply having a bad day.

I hope he was anything other than a glimpse of the future.
