Waterstones Cardiff pt.2
So now it would appear that Patrick Jones sought to provoke the controversy over his book of light verse by e-mailing poems to several extremist groups; furthermore, the BBC’s account appears to suggest that he initially denied this when interviewed. Thus the liberal-left anti-censorship lobby (of which I am a proud adherent) appear to have been used as part of a publicity-stunt. Faintly depressing. It seems somehow ironic that Nicky Wire (a sport-loving heterosexual male who wears dresses and make-up, revels in his minimalistic bass-playing, and named himself after an item of electrical hardware) appears to be the most sensible member of that family.
