by duncanr

RP: I pick a topic, start typing and insert as many stereotypes into the article as possible and then make up some more stuff as I go along. If it makes sense at all, that’s purely accidental. Sometimes I check the facts, if they’ve crept in I delete them. I believe it’s how professionals do it.

Lies, Damn Lies, and Photoshop

by duncanr

blair feet on coffinI received an email the other day from an ex-army mate

the email started ‘this is a disgrace’ and was indignant about the lack of respect shown by Tony Blair to UK troops killed in battle
