Letter to The Editor - The nation needs a new Dryden
To The Australian Full marks again to Greg Sheridan, this time for his demolition of the "politically correct" tomfoolery going on in Britain and especially London ("Politically correct London becoming more nutty by the day", 17/6). The nation needs a new Dryden, Pope or Swift to adequately ridicule "the sheer psycho-silliness of the whole business." Here is a sample of what's needed.
The public scene presents a dismal sight
As pseudo-victims moan about their plight.
Rather hear donkeys bray or monkeys scream
Than suffer London's current bedlam dream!
Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic
