Douglas Carswell, on his blog, rightly complains about the Guardian article written by Michael White.
In the article Michael White writes " I marvel at how a hick Illinois lawyer called Lincoln used the power of the spoken word..............to make himself one of the great men of the 19th century."
As a 'hick', self-important 'hack' using the written word, the accomplishment of Lincoln is something that White need have no fear of emulating in the 21st century!
