    BB and Rene on Thought for the Day
    "But this is not just a contemporary row. This is also a timeless drama. It struck me that Shilpa is a scapegoat, the subject of the loathing and disproportionate blame of others"

    - Catherine Pepinster's Thought for the Day on 19 Jan takes an explicitly Girardian theme. Like my blog of 18 Jan. That's affirming. Thanks Keith for spotting that.

    [Adding to it briefly, it's interesting to reflect on the mechanism through which Jade was also scapegoated, a sacred victim in equal measure...]
