A clip from a gun club newsletter

"...The Napier shooting tragedy has rejuvenated calls by the news media – and Philip Alpers – to implement the contents of the Thorp Report on FIREARMS CONTROL. I wrote to the DOMPOST pointing out that I had an audience with Sir Thomas – who wanted to know how Arms Dealers kept their records, and about The Open Polytechnics Firearms Safety course – and from his comments I came to the conclusion that his investigations were seriously flawed. Needless to say it was too non-PC for the DOMPOST, so I followed it up with another note:

“Sad that you were too PC to publish my letter about the THORP REPORT on FIREARMS CONTROL. The following quote seems to be very appropriate as far as the DOMPOST is concerned
Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end" (Courtesy - R. J. Wiedemann LtCol. USMC Ret)..."

[Bold mine]
