Well, that's now half an hour lost to reading items from the BBFC's archives!

I rather enjoyed the judgement on Lynch's Eraserhead: "Well, it's different and well enough made to merit some consideration."

The original BBFC report into Watership Down.

Oh God. They should have known. THEY SHOULD HAVE KNOWN. Is Animal Farm in there? *Goes to look*

My favourite 'laugh first, think later' thing along the lines of MPs being chosen at random (though note that the model didn't suggest that *all* politicians should be chosen at random, just that some should) is the suggestion that professional models should be drawn by lot from a random selection of the population.

I do worry about novice MPs being led astray by civil servants. Or, indeed, professional ones.

And your suggestion re:models is, indeed, making me think.

I am reminded of the scene in Black Adder III where Baldrick is elected MP for Dunny on the Wold and follows Pitt the Even Younger through the wrong lobby.

BBFC's archives -- I'd just like to see everything really...

You have NO IDEA how much I want to go to the Faroe Islands. When I finally had enough time and money to afford the walk-on fare for the ferry from Scrabster, they cancelled the sailing (I was going to take hiking/camping gear to save money). Now it's an expensive plane trip plus the hassle of taking hiking/camping gear on a plane.

Dammit I want to go to Faroes

OH I LOOKED AT ALL THE PICTURES AND NOW I REALLY WANT TO GO

Clearly we need to charter a boat.

actually, I just looked at airfares again and they aren't as out of reach as I was thinking *formulates plan*
