In light of the revulsion that I have felt from the news of recent weeks, I have marked through the entirety of the blog post above.
I will not delete it as it needs to remain to remind myself of what I and the majority of the country believed of a man who it turns out, was nothing of the sort. It will stand in time as an example of how we can sometimes be so totally wrong that it beggers belief and almost defies comprehension.
I have never before and hope will never have to again, redact a previous blog post of mine in this way. I will now update my blog with news of this necessary change.
