None of this wimpy, politically-correct "sexual predator" or "sexual offender" stuff. Bring back the plain and simple terminology, I say!
Afterthought; I wonder how long it will be before some pervert tries to quote the Americans with Disabilities Act when refused a job as a janitor at a school?

Haha, says Mr Doncaster!
Sounds more like a The Sun headline though.
Cheeky bugger, Mark.
Mind you, I'm only an adopted East Anglian. I'm a Salopian by birth, but as a Doncastrian (?) you probably consider that even worse [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
Peter, did you ever get over to West Anglia? I hear it's real nice. Never rains there much?

Rich raises an interesting point.
Why ISN'T there a West Anglia? In fact, as far as I'm aware, there never HAS been a West Anglia. Or, come to that, a North or South one, or just plain "Anglia," even though the origin of that word predates England itself.
