I distrust people who talk to me about objectivity and despise people who run with the hares and hunt with the hounds. It makes me angry when I hear one author condemning the work of another on the spurious ground of ‘objectivity’. Leave that to The Times and God!…No nationalist can be objective where the fate of his country’s freedom is involved. The trouble with most British people is that they have not had any foreigners sitting on their necks since the Danes and Normans. So they are the only people who make a fetish of ‘objectivity’ except when Napoleon and Hitler were threatening to ‘visit’ them and turn them into ‘natives’ - as conquered people are called. I presume Miss Lucy [generic for the white madam] should be ‘objective’ and take her kicks.
