Surgical spirit

  • Comment

Court reports can be amusing: take the trial of AnthonyNoel (sic) Kelly and Niel (sic) Lindsay, accused of stealing body parts from the Royal College of Surgeons in the cause of art. It is not the Burke-and-Hare case itself which is the subject of mirth, but the fact that Kelly is described as a 'teacher' at the Prince's Institute (aka PoWSoABA). Not, like Richard Hodges, Richard John, Giles Worsley et al, an ex-member of staff, but presumably still on the payroll! This gives an appropriately macabre twist to recent events at Gloucester Gate, where the fight is still being fought (with or without Adrian Gale) against those whom the PoW describes as 'terrifying Modernists'.
