I quote - "You have to accept that contempary wisdom on all things shifts with new research uncovering new facts and shedding new light on old subjects. And that Dictionaries and history books take time to change."
I do accept that, what I don't accept is to dismiss earlier efforts and decry their proponents. I don't think Einstein ever said "That Isaac Newton, what a thicko!" As for the "liberal elitist" nonsense, that sounds like another way of saying middle class, which doesn't get a rise out of this old proletarian.
Prescott was born in North Wales, reared in Lancashire or Cheshire, and foisted on the tolerant folks of my fair city. We accept no responsibility for him.
