Have just watched the final episode of Tom Stoppard's adaptation of Ford Madox Ford's Parade's End, and noticed more than one occurrence of the phrase "No more parades", which is also the title of the second volume of FMF's tetralogy. Surely Clive is referencing this in the song Payday Evening, from which our forum also draws its name?

 
Here is a piece which suggests that Clive in all probability had read much of  Ford Madox Ford's output by the time he wrote the song.

The Telegraph seems to have had a brain fart and still hasn't remembered to upload Clive's column from last week, despite having posted this week's. Since some of us live outside the UK and would have a hard time tracking down old editions, could some kind Samaritan scan and post the missing column here?  
But if no one can, no worries--I'm sure the column will appear in Clive's next essay collection.
