Oh right What can we do about THAT? Our gizmos have been locked up. Ben's not talking to us. We're STUCK

Gren - we HAVE to stop. I've just realised that we're creating more Intellectual Property for the benefit of the SCHOOL

Gren - we have a problem

Sensible as always, Tiddles. But the problem goes a bit deeper - Max Mosley has set up an organisation called Impress for which he's trying to get quasi-statutory authority. And there's a whole sub-plot involving the Labour MP Tom Watson to whom Max Mosley gave some money to run his office. The money's not being returned - probably can't be, being already spent - and the Mail is going to town about THAT. It's a mess

I think Max Mosley's problem is that he's got too much money for his own good. Nowadays, the ultra-rich like to dictate what the truth is or was. If he asked my advice, I'd say leave the Mail to run the story as much and as often as they like, and eventually their readers will get bored with it, and then they won't run it any more

This one's a minefield, isn't it. If we have the Permissive Society, what objection can there be to kinky rumpy-pumpy? If we don't, then he should be shown up. It's the old question: is everything of interest to the public in the public interest? Well, it's clear that the Mail knows that its readers want to read about SM orgies complete with ladies dressed up as concentration camp guards (which last bit Max Mosley denies.) But is there really any legitimate public interest in the story's being in the public domain? It's not as though Max Mosley is part of political life: he has stated that that was closed to him because of the notoriety of his father, the Fascist leader Oswald Mosley. Instead he has devoted himself to Formula 1 car racing

To be fair, the Mail is waging the war on plastic - most commendable. Apart from that, it's an execrable paper. It always finds something nasty to say about everything. It is, however, well-written.
At the moment it is waging a war on Max Mosley, presenting to its readers evidence of his anti-Semitism and fascism from decades ago. I don't believe that this evidence is new. I think the Mail's had it on file forever, ready to clobber Mr Mosley with should he get on the Mail's nerves. And now he's done exactly that: he's been trying, through the courts, to stop the Mail from re-running the story of his paid-for SM orgy every time they feel like it. He would like it consigned to oblivion on the grounds of privacy

Monday morning, and very boring. However, the Daily Mail has suddenly become enviromentally friendly: there isn't a single story in it that hasn't been recycled from Sunday's Mail on Sunday

Those two jokes are interesting. The former is so because it's so obvious, that one thinks one ought to have thought it up oneself. The latter because, although attributed to a comedian, it's got such clarity that it's difficult to believe it's newly-minted. I could be wrong on this, of course
