Quote of the day

"I should not have suggested – in an off-the-cuff response that was not part of my presentation – that Keynes was indifferent to the long run because he had no children, nor that he had no children because he was gay. This was doubly stupid."

Niall Ferguson apologises for making homophobic remarks about John Maynard Keynes. As if we really need another bigoted loudmouth historian - David Starkey is one too many as it is.
