Rod Liddle on hypocrisy..

Really amusing column from Rod Liddle in the Sunday Times on the years of unspoken dishonesty of grade inflation. He finishes with the revelation - A long time ago, when I worked for the BBC, I once attempted to address the problem of the corporation's seemingly inherent liberal bias by employing, as a reporter, a tweed-jacketed, red-cheeked, bespectacled, marble-mouthed crypto-fascist. He was so visibly, hilariously Conservative that I thought it might be a Harry Enfield prank. But no, he was real enough. He was Michael Gove, and that was his first paid job.
