Like others in this discussion I have this paranormal
precognition that no one is going to make much of an impression
on Lawrie Williams's sense of righteousness, but there are couple
of exceptionally tasty bits in this one that I don't want to let
pass without brief comment. I'm quoting them out of order for
rhetorical emphasis.

I was rather under the impression that I was trying to defend the
girls from unnecessary upset, of course, but perhaps I was
mistaken and was supporting Lawrie W. all the time without
knowing it; being like Milton a true poet and unwittingly of the
Devil's party...

[This was directed at Michael Malone, and let it be known I have no
objection to being regarded by anyone as a cut below him.]
But consider this:

A gent of our acquaintance happens upon a scene of depravity and
violence featuring a hapless lady and a member - it would seem -
of the criminal classes. The gent dimly recognizes the lady.

Duke:   Dammit, sir, you are raping my wife.
Duchess: Help! Help!
Duke:   One moment madam. And please adjust your dress. You will
        catch your death in this fog.
Perp:   And you get that swordstick out of my neck. Bleedin' toff.
Duke:   And you get that... Gad, this is heinous crime you are
        committing, sir. And there is no need to descend to
        abuse. Sow, and ye shall reap, and all that.
Perp:   Oh yeah? Listen mate. I'm just doin' my job. Are you tellin'
        me how to do my job?
Duke:   My dear fellow, far be it from me...
Duchess: Help? Help?
Perp:   Tosser. I bet you never had a proper job in your life.
Duke:   True. But rape is rape, you know. And this is my wife.
Perp:   So what? You could cut my head off with that thing. Ouch.
Duke:   I've had a better idea.

The Duke is, of course, entirely out of order, in concentrating
his ire on a moral outrage and failing to understand that his
intervention may cause pain to the perpetrator. One feels sure
that a court would award the rapist damages for loss of dignity,
at the very least. We live in interesting times.

But I think my all-time favorite will be this:

> Of course your statistics [...]  will be only
> tenuously connected with our situation over here.

Mmm. So Oz abductions are different from those in the USA, the
UK, the Seychelles? Egypt? Tierra del Fuego? Mongolia? Now here
is something to stretch even the talents of Chief Eddie Hard

If only one knew more...

Yours &c
