Facts are free, comment is sacred

Screen Shot 2015-01-18 at 23.03.50Dalrymple points to a news report in the Guardian on the court appearance of Oscar Pistorius. The report is full of pity and understanding for Pistorius, and one sentence stands out:

[Pistorius] remained inconsolable and silent…a lonely man in a crowded room.

The Guardian, says Dalrymple, accords Pistorius

considerably more sympathy than would have been the case if he were, shall we say, a tattooed member of the National Front with a Staffordshire bull terrier who was in more or less the same position.
