I wonder whether the veiled suggestion of amputating parts of obnoxious small children would be edited out of this article nowadays if it were submitted for publication?Thinking back to mags from the seventies and eighties I seem to remember rather more razor-edged wit than seems permissible now; do we blame political correctness, 'elf and safety, or both?
There's no way this would get it now. To incorrect. Shame. All the articles are starting to look the same.
