Which news is fake? — 1 Comment

  1. I would be far far faaaaaar more likely to credit Robert Fisk with getting nearer the truth than anything I’ve seen or read from any other source.

    Here’s a little story what may or may not have historical value.

    Back before we had police forces, that role, the control of peace, was a province of the lords and gentlemen of a county. Now we have a number of things alive still from those days like the Point to Point races and the Fox Hunt. Both echoes of the old militias.
    Back then there were a few sources of money available to the lords and gentlemen, but few quite as filled with lolly as the report writing to the Castle in Ireland and to the Whitehall in England about the lack of peace in a county.
