I have mentioned before that 'back in the day' - and how far off they seem now! - I became an admirer of Oliver Kamm and his blog. He was, and I guess still is, to the Left of centre and in my conceit I occasionally crossed swords with him. "Ouch!" was my usual response to his wounding ripostes which were always composed politely but aimed with deadly accuracy. At the time he was 'something in the City' but shortly there-after he was recruited by The Times where he rose to an editorial level and there, I assume, he remains today. I mention all this because I have just stumbled over an article by him published at the CAP-X site on the subject of the Russian love of lying. It's well worth a read!
