(age 79) is (or rather was) a famous reporter in Norway. He has written Mick Jagger into his own stay at LSE, sort of being connected to Jagger, even if they were five years apart in time - he never bothered to check his own story before publishing it. It is sad to see an old twisting the truth in order to sell books.
First the lie in the book of Christian Borch:
In the chapter "Historiens U-sving" Borch writes that Mick Jagger was one year ahead of him at the London School of Economics (LSE), and says in an interview with NRK's Drivkraft about the book that Jagger was the one year ahead him.
“A year above me at LSE studied a fellow called Mick Jagger. He soon came up with something else," he writes in the book.
But: The two never attended LSE at the same time. The press officer at LSE confirms to VG that Mick Jagger was a student there from 1961 to 1963. Christian Borch only started in 1968.
Then another lie to explain the first lie:
That has been my impression until now, I thought he was there at the same time. The LSE students were at the forefront of continuing the student revolt from the continent, and Jagger was at the front in connection with it, both as a pep talk at meetings on campus, and with texts in various contexts. His affiliation with the university was constantly emphasized.Will correct several errors in the Borch book: - You portray me as a cheater
