Isn’t this civilised?

How civilised, as the Islington middle classes mindlessly parrot. You give the cunts a glass of wine and switch the fire on, and they say: ‘This is civilised.’ They cut some fucking pieces of ciabatta with a knife, and they go: ‘Isn’t this civilised?’

And you want to go: no, you daft cunt, no it’s fucking well not, because civilisation extends beyond pouring wine and cutting bread and what you’re really talking about is simply leisure and relaxation.

– Irvine Welsh, Porno
