"(Fiennes) affects a manner of disinterest and snobbish disdain... His aloofness...raises suspicions that behind the craggy squire-ish facade is a man terrified of others."
UK Guardian says (excerpted quotation)
From: http://www.guardian.co.uk/Archive/Article/0,4273,4111108,00.html
"Ranulph Fiennes...reignited a race row...rejecting claims...one of the first people to reach the North Pole was a black man."

Guinness Book of Records declares Henson & Peary first reached the North Pole. Fiennes disagrees. Will Fiennes share his "mathematical proof" with Guinness? With this website?
Commentary about this UK Guardian article:
"Fiennes says: 'Sadly, I doubt that Henson and Peary ever got to the North Pole.
It can be mathematically* proved that they could not have done it
on the basis of their notes.
"
(UK Guardian)
*We invite Fiennes to send us a copy of this "mathematical proof" so we may publish it.
One of Fiennes English friends, and an American business associate of Fiennes, have accused us of calling Fiennes a "racist". The screen shot (above) of the Guardian web page proves that references to "racial dispute", "a race row", and "rejecting...a black man" are 100% British in origin. We have written both of the aforementioned gentlemen letters explaining all this. Yet they seem to reject the achievement of Henson & Peary as readily as Fiennes did to Ben Summerskill. If more people write to us about this we shall endeavor to provide additional web pages explaining the facts of Henson & Peary's successful 1909 North Pole expedition; an event that remains un-equaled to this day.
