Down with this sort of thing…

Newt gets quote of the week (subs needed):

Moves are afoot to brand the SS Nomadic as unacceptably Protestant. Research confirms that this entirely non-sectarian campaign is fully justified. The Nomadic was commandeered as an allied troop-carrier during both World Wars, thus supporting the Anglo-American imperialist hegemony. She was propelled by two screws, which is clearly a one-sided tribute to prison officers; and her last duty as a tender was serving the Queen Elizabeth. Down with this sort of thing etc.
