I don't know what she's talking about in this last paragraph, and, more to the point, neither does she. "For once?" "Finally done?" "Every one of us a rare opportunity?" The Proms are one of the finest music festivals on the planet and this loadabollox is an insult. She sounds like one of those who think the Proms is the Last Night.   Go find your own barn,

I think I know exactly what she is talking about. It is the pompous, patronising presenters you all too often get on the broadcast proms, including the last night. Richard Baker used to make me cringe every time I saw him.

Well said Eliza
