Dalrymple’s writing for the Daily Express is always a little more pedestrian than his usual stuff. No long and syntactically tortured sentences here. These pieces also seem to be a little more populist in tone, usually criticizing MP’s or government bureaucrats on behalf of ordinary citizens.
This piece from last week discusses MP’s who apparently were not sufficiently chastened by the exposure of their outrageous expense claims.
UPDATE: I want to make this more clear. The “syntactically tortured” comment is a sarcastic reference to this satire on Dalrymple’s new book Spoilt Rotten wherein the writer criticizes Dalrymple’s writing style. Obviously I don’t think Dalrymple’s writing is syntactically tortured, or I wouldn’t positively gush about it (as I did here).
Or created this website, for that matter.
