National Treasures

I was going to do a post about how "national treasure" seems to be a code for overrated idiot.

However while preparing to take pot shots at smug celebrities like David Attenborough and Stephen Fucking Fry I came across a piece by Nick Cohen on rather more sinister national treasures, Cyril Smith and Jimmy Savile.

Well worth reading.

Makes a person worry about who really is a national treasure.

[If a person could be bothered, of course. :) ]

It is worth reading. I never liked Cyril Smith, never quite knew why.
