Bargepoles and Such
October 09, 2010
As I get my news mainly from the Guardian and the BBC, it had entirely passed me by.
Ian Jack, Guardian columnist, reveals a little more than he intends.
Mr Jack is referring to this story about the Miliband brothers, their tax arrangements and property portfolios.
The Guardian was probably right to ignore a story that charged Miliband with greed and hypocrisy.
Given the track record of the Guardian’s own editor and many of its contributors, hypocrisy is indeed a subject best avoided.
