On the same theme, I would also encourage people to listen to a Radio 4 broadcast called ‘Nothing but the Truth’ by Jo Fidgen about ‘Post Truth’ There is a fascinating story about a republican politician (Bob Inglis) who was voted out of the party after changing his mind to believe in man-made climate change. So, Mr Inglis has a unique take on group-think as it cost him his job.
