First we take Manhattan*

Anyone (republican or royalist) irritated to the point of apoplexy by the Sun’s extraordinary non-story about alleged Nazi salutes in the early 30s may nevertheless enjoy the spectacle of the Express and the Mail flocking to join the rush to cast the first stone.

It says something about the quality of the Mail’s research that the paper apparently believes that the Statue of Liberty is on Staten Island.

*These lines fromĀ Leonard Cohen’s song seem particularly apposite: “First we take Manhattan/Then we take Berlin”
