Not, perhaps, best known for the sophistication of their humour

A friend just wrote to say that he saw

the comments on Damian Thompson's blog about a spat between DT and Evan Harris, and saw this one:

"I am against abortion, but when I see "Dr" Harris I waver!"

In these cases I used to say that one would look with favour at a strictly retroactive abortion, for certain individuals.

I stopped saying it when I moved to Germany, where people were utterly unable to understand that it was a joke and kept saying that "it is not possible to abort one retroactively".
