An’ the dawn comes up like thunder outer Berkeley ‘crost the Bay!

O brave new world, That has such people in’t!

The latest mad orthodoxy

The current monomania, writes Dalrymple, is transsexualism. He notes that the National Association of Head Teachers

has issued guidance (the kind that communist dictators used to issue when they visited locomotive repair workshops or sausage factories, their words of wisdom on every subject being taken down by scribes), to the effect that there should be books in all schools for children under the age of 11 about ‘transgender’ parents, and that ‘trans people, their issues and experiences’, should be ‘celebrated across the school’.

It raises the question, says Dalrymple,

of how one celebrates transsexualism: dancing round a maypole hung with packets of oestrogen or testosterone?
