The first is on the composer Ralph Vaughan Williams, who I have written about here before. The article is entitled 'Vaughan Williams: not simply a nostalgic nationalist' and looks at how he doesn't conform to many of the stereotypes given to him, particularly by progressives and anti-Brexit types.
The second is 'In Praise of NIMBYs', which was published today and seeks to redress some of the bile that these committed members of the community [Not-In-My-Back-Yard-ers] receive from our political elites.
I hope they are worth a read. Feel free to put any comments up here or to me on Twitter since there is no comment facility on the Unherd site.
Here's a bit more VW anyway: perhaps the greatest piece he ever wrote.
