oh dear - thanks for this! I am gobsmacked too that this brilliant poem could be dismissed by Mrs Schofield as weird - you may as well dismiss the entire canon of this world's literature on those grounds. ( Ah, methinks she's a pleb. or a plonker - take your pick.)

There's been a great deal about this on the blogosphere. I think it's been quite interesting reading about the initial decision and then the response, which I thought quite measured.

I think understatement is the way to go when faced with this sort of pc nonsense.
