is he ...
... beavering away at home writing his scoop for a tabloid about indiscretion and political correctness gone mad ...?
and ... the greater concern for punctuation clearly indicates that Reg readers have not given in to the oversensitivities of minority groups and gone political correctness mad ... after all, if it had been something like 'I'm tired of dirty beaver and off to find some homos' ... NOBODY would even have been questioning it! It's not as though they said somthing like ' Let's go beat up some homos' ... that WOULD have been UNNACCEPTABLE ... but opinion of preference ... get over it!
Let me guess, calling myself a heterosexual will be un-PC just now?
