Making things right

yesterday morning (sunday 23rd), 8.48-8.58am, on bbc radio 4
shylock’s mock appeal (presented by howard jacobson) (in the a point of view series)

Howard Jacobson applauds the granting of an appeal by Shylock in a mock trial in Venice as a symbolic revoking of a bad decision.
‘It’s natural to rage against wrong decisions, miscarrriages of justice or the inclemencies of nature, but the more fanciful of us go further and imagine that some power will intervene and make things right again’.”
