The BBC British History on-line article about the Great Fire Of London has been altered after complaints -
With the country also at war with the French and Dutch, paranoid xenophobia - a familiar English trait - was rife.
"Of the period" has been inserted after "familar English trait". But this is still wrong to my mind, still anti-English. Did Bruce Robinson have a Tardis so that he could nip back and do an Esther Rantzen-style vox pop? And even if paranoid xenophobia was rife, surely it was not confined to the English alone in the world?
The article's better. But still not right.
