"We've slipped into a terrible cultural coma and it's going to take a slap round the face to wake us up again."
Sam Delaney criticises the homogenisation of Britain in terms of the towns beginning to look the same with the same shops, and in society with a conforming obssession with looks and celebrities amongst teenagers rather than a desire to be different and rebellious. Considers the power of the big corporations in people's shopping experiences, the music industry, and a cultural blandness.
