Cheers, Rob. (The people who moan are generally the ones who don’t like seeing reflections of their own racism unveiled!)

This book is great throughout, the Epilogue hits the nail on the head. The people who have consistently told lies should be held to account in a Tv\radio interview before they can contribute further. Brilliant read

Interesting to hear David Davis commenting on Dorothy Byrne’s Mactaggart lecture thoughts on interviewers saying things are untrue or lies when politicians say things that are untrue or lies. I’ve been doing it for a while.

That does not seem like a culture in which objective reporting can flourish. Objectively, Farage is a liar. That’s a formidably evidenced, empirically unmistakable fact. If you’re afraid to say so, even at home, you've failed at objectivity.

For a lot of journalists (& politicians) who are not fundamentally dishonest the problem is almost existential now. Entire careers, not to mention intersecting social lives, conducted in complete ignorance of what EU membership entailed. It’s a very high place to climb down from.

This is one of those distilled culture war moments isn't it. Anyone with civility thinks: No, you unspeakable buffoon. Anyone without thinks: Yeah, sticking it to the frogs.

A lie is a lie, no matter how ‘listenable’ the liar. I always believed that the BBC was a bastion of this simple standard. It certainly used to be. 🥺
