You Must Read This

George Orwell's essay "Politics and the English Language". 

I mean it.  No more free ice cream until you come back after having read it.  It will be on the test. BBC has refused to allow a privately funded statue of this great man outside their studios, because he was "too left wing". 

As if that has ever stopped the BBC from doing anything.  May the ghost of Eric Blair haunt your miserable dreams, and fill your sleepless nights with tubercular coughing, the budding NHS having denied him antibiotics for his disease, forcing him to write to his friends in the USA for help, which was confiscated at Customs.  Oh how proud you are of your young man, BBC, and how you honor his example.
