Any minute now, it will be 1984, and if the crazy Old Etonian is to be believed, we shall all be suffering beneath the heel of a tyrannical Leader, the world will be living in constant terror of nuclear annihilation, civil servants will control our lives, and television will be unwatchable. Worse, we shall not be able to believe everything we read in the newspapers, our children will behave abominably, and none of us will be getting enough sex. Clearly, Orwell was off his trolley. Who would put up with a world like that? Unless, of course, they could roll around laughing at it, which in the magnum opus of the Burmese policeman they singularly fail to do. And that is because one of the most important things that the inept seer neglected to include in his gloomy vision was that, whatever else happened in 1984, there would still be Punch.
