"Sadly that last line is probably a little too close to the bone for many of the older party members."

It has long seemed apparent that those who vociferously campaign against "pr0n" are those whose minds see sex in everything. St Jerome et al have a lot to answer for in conditioning people's thinking even in these supposedly enlightened times.

David Frost once did a satirical sketch where he interviewed a supposed Mary Whitehouse type campaigner. The man said he could identify "filthy" TV programmes just from their titles. He declared the "filthiest" programme to be - "Blue Peter"***.

***a wholesome children's programme famous for making things like Christmas decorations out of wire coat hangers and plastic bottles. A "Blue Peter" is the signal flag a ship hoists when it is about to set sail. "Peter" is an old euphemism for a penis.
