Islington (left) and Hampstead

They seem to want to abolish the country they inherited. But do they really? asks Dalrymple.

Of course they want, he writes,

to appear more liberal than thou, in the way that Islamists want to appear more Islamic than thou.

But

I am not sure that, in their hearts, they really want the changes they push with such assiduity.

Rather,

it is that they live in so solidly privileged a world, so removed from the world of the changes they have promoted, that they cannot really envisage any real change in their own conditions of life.
