Scrutophobia

11th April 2019 25

May’s “government” adds censorship to its fool’s repertoire I should declare an interest, for I count Sir Roger as a friend from a day in 1985 when he was in danger of violence from a mob of the lumpen intelligentsia at York University who shouted him down and issued threats to his very existence.
