More power to Nick Cohen’s elbow!

Nick Cohen (he of “What’s Left?”) really is one of the good guys. If his website isn’t on your personal list of places to visit once a week or so, then it should be (he said, with the “now listen to me” tone of the ex-teacher).

The core of this particular article is contained in this quote: ‘When I was researching You Can’t Read This Book, my study of censorship, an old joke came back to me. “You can be a famous poisoner or a successful poisoner but you can’t be both”. Successful censorship is hidden.’
