Sic

Just on TV: a trailer for a film called Freedom Writers. Some nonsense about a teacher inspiring students to write, apparently.

As is now traditional, the please-won’t-someone-think-of-the-children line listing the reasons to avoid/see the film was on display throughout the trailer. It said, and I quote, “Contains one use of stong language”.

Stong. Ha ha ha. Writers. Do you see?

Oh dear. A caption has just appeared on Newsnight naming TV’s Charles Moore as Margaret Thatcher’s “Athorised biographer”. And then again, but when someone else was on screen.

I may very well write in green ink to the Daily Telegraph, ensuring flecks of foamy spittle decorate the Basildon Bond and blaming the homosexuals. Will this madness never end?
