Of course, Nigel Farndale isn't in the same league as John Pilger really. Whenever I read anything of Pilger's I am reminded of Mary McCarthy's withering dismissal of Lillian Hellmann: "every word she writes is a lie, including 'and', and 'the'." Pilger is worse than that. The very dots of his i's and the serifs on the letters are pregnant with mendacity and bile.
