Where on Earth do you start?

So, it’s been a couple of days now since the Crevice trial verdict and I still haven’t written a post on it. Which, given the past history of this blog, could be considered unusual.

The truth is that the media reaction and the spin being pumped out in the wake of the Crevice verdict is so voluminous and so all encompassing in its insanity I’m frankly left speechless.

Where on Earth do you start?

Postman Patel has had a couple of stabs at the task but he is just one of a handful of lonely voices pleading for some sanity. And we really are talking only a handful here.

My country has gone nuts

And I must confess the thought of joining the majority - just falling asleep one night and waking up as a Believer, free from all those nagging doubts and concerns - does have a certain appeal

This man believes everything he sees on Newsnight and reads in the newspapers. Why don't you?'s that, or migrating to an island somewhere

Answer B methinks

Oh go on, Stef. We're all relying on you!

The northern papers have been really vile, although I haven't been able to do much more than scan the covers, but I daresay the picture isn't pretty anywhere.
