    As the judge at Irving's trial noted (and remember it was Irving who took the case to court to silence criticism no the other way over), Irving is the kind of expert who needs expertise to unmask. He sounds plausible, he has enough knowledge of German history and documentation to spin a telling yarn. However as a serious, objective historian he is useless, and worse than useless, according to the judgement his systematic tendency to filter sources and to selectively interpret make him in effect a pathological liar. The Oxford Union is playing with fire, its naive students may be hypnotised by apparently impressive scholarship and eloquence, the reality is they are baring their throats to an old and experienced apologist for mass murder.
