Calder's Comfort Farm: A is for Aardvark, Aaronovitch and ABBA

The latest Calder's Comfort Farm is up on the New Statesman website:
Because everyone should challenge the Guardian's pieties. When I was at a loose end in London I used to hide in the bushes outside the newspaper's offices. As the journalists walked passed I would whisper things like "Bright working-class kids did better when their were grammar schools" or "Polly Toynbee supported David Owen's Continuing SDP".
It was great fun. I made Simon Hoggart cry once.
