James_Treadwell: Even back to Macpherson, the shadow of corruption fell over the Lawrence investigation (but outside the remit) and for the Met perhaps racism became preferable to endemic (unaddressed) corruption. Perhaps the firm within a firm was always there?

peterjukes: So much reading. The headline - as you probably all know by now - is the Met have been judged to be ‘institutionally corrupt’ in the same way they were judged ‘institutionally racist’ by the MacPherson report in 1996

SethCotlar: My fellow historians might be interested in this segment where a 32 year old James MacPherson (I'm 99% sure it's him) asks Wallace a question. Wallace responds by talking about "black on black crime," tho the film cuts off right at that point.

RuairidhMaciver: The other Gaelic-related Napoleonic fact that we all need in our lives was that he was besotted by the Poems of Ossian by James Macpherson. He's reported to have carried and read aloud from the Italian translation of the poems, by Melchiorre Cesarotti, with him on his campaigns.

Poem of the day

Carl Sandburg Poem
House
 by Carl Sandburg

TWO Swede families live downstairs and an Irish policeman upstairs, and an old soldier, Uncle Joe.
Two Swede boys go upstairs and see Joe. His wife is dead, his only son is dead, and his two daughters in Missouri and Texas don't want him around.
The boys and Uncle Joe crack walnuts with a hammer on the bottom of a flatiron while the January wind howls and the zero air weaves laces on the window glass.
Joe tells the Swede boys all about Chickamauga and Chattanooga, how the Union soldiers crept in rain somewhere a dark night and ran forward and killed many Rebels, took flags, held a hill, and won a victory told about in the histories in school.
Joe takes a piece of carpenter's chalk, draws lines on the floor and piles stove wood to show where six regiments were slaughtered climbing a slope.
'Here they went' and 'Here they went,' says Joe, and the January wind howls and the zero air weaves laces on the window glass.
The two Swede boys go downstairs with a big blur of guns, men, and hills in their heads. They eat herring and potatoes and tell the family war is a wonder and soldiers are a wonder.
One breaks out with a cry at supper: I wish we had a war now and I could be a soldier.
