... for it said no more than the bare truth. I refer to Tim Worstall's admirable fisking here of an article in today's Guardian by someone called Neil Clark. He is described as a writer and broadcaster specialising in east European affairs; that's as may be, but just because he specialises in this it does not mean what he writes and broadcasts has any relevance to a calm and rational understanding of the situation in eastern Europe then (before the fall of Communism) or now.
Having lived in or visited a few of these so-called socialist paradises myself, the mendacity and wrong-headedness of Neil Clark's analysis is simply breathtaking. Oh yes, in the circumstances Tim's 'colourful' post is indeed a model of calmness and rationality!
