A hanging

If you read David Slack's piss-take this morning on the hanging of a Herald journalist for treason, I suggest reading the original: "A Hanging", by George Orwell. It's autobiographical, and recounts one of his experiences when serving in the Indian Imperial Police in the twenties.


I read Orwells' piece again. It reminded me of why the man was one of the great heroes of the last century.
