Arts Council-backed literary magazine, I suppose I would find some sections of this often amusing book offensive.

Actually, more than offensive.

To those who long for relief from the suffocating, smug ghastliness at the core of the worship of mediocrity known as Political Correctness, these writings are a superb antidote. In a society where a lack of facility for critical discrimination masquerades as tolerance and freedom from bigotry, and the only standard is to have no standards - what else should one expect to emanate from an educational system which regards the teaching of English grammar and pronunciation as elitist? - this book is like a breath of fresh air. Imagining the targets of Waugh's merciless wit as he skewers them with consummate aim fills the reader with delight, and the causes he espouses with his tongue firmly in his cheek cannot fail to engender a smile. While the writings of Auberon Waugh survive, we may live in hope!

An absolute pisser. Bron was the funniest writer in the English speaking world. Look forward to the day when Private Eye do a compendium of all his columns.
