You see, it's an odd thing. Dan Snow graduated with a first-class honours in History.
But if he'd written the list of unsubstantiated and poorly-argued assertions in his Guardian piece on Remembrance Sunday in an essay at Oxford, he'd still be in his first tutorial. "Lazy", "biased", "unbalanced", "lacking evidence", are I suspect a few things that his tutor would be saying.
I could go on, but I don't need to. Phil Ritchie has put more effort into demolishing the wretched piece than Dan Snow appears to have put into writing it.
