We wrote to Biteback publishing regarding a fabricated quote attributed to Mayer Amschel Rothschild, which featured in the recently published book, “Ten Years to Save the West” by Liz Truss. The publishing house has apologised for this quote being mistakenly cited and for the failure to identify its false nature during the fact-checking process. They have promised that it will be removed in the e-book version and in any future print editions of the book. We thank them for their swift response.
