In a surprise move by the BBC Proms today it was announced that the celebrated Last Night was to be replaced with a terrifying demonstration of Fascist Power by the promenaders and the BBC Philharmonic. Dramatically confirming everything its critics claimed it to be, the Last Night is due to morph into a sinister festival of “national renewal” including flag waving and blood-curdling patriotic communal singing while its fanatical participants parade in their menacing black and white uniforms. The self-styled leader or “conductor” of this nascent movement, Jiří Bělohlávek, is expected to give a tub-thumping speech to the massed ranks of his supporters, and declare war on Glyndebourne.
