Starkey raving bonkers again

He caused a bit of commotion arguing with the ridiculous Helena Kennedy last week but the main outrage which went completely unnoticed was David Starkey's incredible statement that the people accepted the Magna Carta which secured their liberty by agreeing to taxation.Think about it.They bought their liberty with chains around their necks,allowing the government to extract monies from them in perpetuity,rendering them slaves of the state.I know,it is rather hard to get your head round such a complete contradiction and this from a renowned and accomplished historian.

When even the best of our intellectuals are so mired in confusion and contradiction what hope indeed?
