Letters From the Editor

Kayak - that's a palindrome. Canoe - that's not. What's that about then?

The Bill Before the House
Bill to Expand the Voting Base of the BRITON'S DEMOCRACY introduced by the Rt Hon Teabun Manly (Soc), Member for Bootle.
i. That the measure of democracy is in the extension of suffrage.
ii. Accordingly, to extend the vote to landed gentry aged 31 and over who earn less than £15,001 per annum.
(Defeated unanimously; the Rt Hon Gentleman symbolically horse-whipped by Her Gracious Majesty the full height of the House steps.)

The BRITON'S SCIENCE has shewn that The Weekly, the magazine which strives to maintain Britain's standards, has topped* one million readers since 1871.

"Christ! What was that?" said MR MILLINGTON of this mathematically inevitable achievement.

MR NASH added: "I'm cold. Please drape a cloth over my knobbly ditch."

* Though not, of course, in the sense of assassination. The Weekly has had cause to assassinate no more than a carriage's-worth of readers.

I'm working off my shame
This chap's purchased an OFFICIAL THE WEEKLY T-SHAPED SHIRT and now he's working off his shame at indulging in such wasteful extravagance. You too may display similar penitence, and perhaps press hot coins guiltily into the hands of a stooped clerk for a copy of MR MILLINGTON's improving books Things About Which My Girlfriend And I Have Argued, A Certain Chemistry, Love and Other Near-Death Experiences and Instructions For Living Someone Else's Life, by patronising the The Weekly Corner Shop corner shop. Items despatched under plain wrapper, school-boys will be chased from the premises with a broom.

Britain's Heritage of Games

Game: Homing-Pickles
Played chiefly in: Umberleigh.
Objective: It is the silent midnight redundancy of a closed-down school playground and each player must stand still, eyes rendered useless by satin blindfolds, in the spaces marked out on the hopscotch board. The inside pockets of their long flapping black cloaks are stuffed, ritualistically, with fresh pickles. The players must make it home via any means at their disposal, but mostly by running really fast. After a count of up to twelve, a pack of suitably incensed hounds is unleashed after its prey. The drooling beasts have been cruelly starved of pickles for more than four weeks. The hounds will rend and tear in an unstoppable flurry of teeth and woofs in order to reach the tart bounty.
Obstacles: The dark mist-filled streets, riddled with surprise cats and lone drunks rambling about their shoes. The cats will not have shoes. Milkmen.
Rating: Invigorating.
