In the Desert of Mistrust

In this land nobody ever keeps their promises.

When asked by Jeremy Paxman, on BBC Empire, about trustworthiness of Lawrence of Arabia. I have watched the first episode/segment but the presentation is so guilt ridden. As normal for such histories British imperialism is condemned as inhuman compared to such fun fests as Arab imperialism, Turkish imperialism, Mogul imperialism.
