Like denying Allah’s existence in Mecca

Radiantly fascist

Radiantly fascist

Dalrymple drops in at an exhibition devoted to Le Corbusier, the fascist architect. The event fittingly takes place

in a hideous complex of buildings designed to overawe, humiliate, and confuse any human being unfortunate enough to find his way in.

At the exhibition, Dalrymple falls into conversation with

two elegantly coiffed ladies of the kind who spend their afternoons in exhibitions. ‘Marvellous, don’t you think?’ one said to me, to which I replied: ‘Monstrous.’ Both opened their eyes wide, as if I had denied Allah’s existence in Mecca.
