Shakespeare's Romper Stomper II

"Romper Stomper's TV revival will have its world premiere in South Melbourne tonight and the latest instalment in the white supremacist saga has already put multicultural and Muslim leaders on tenterhooks... Romper Stomper creator Geoffrey Wright said storytellers had to avoid giving in to political correctness. 'Are people concerned if someone watches a show like this, they'll have their head turned? Nobody thinks Shakespeare's Richard III is an endorsement of child killers'." (Disquiet over Romper remake, Richard Ferguson, The Australian, 5/12/17)

I knew William Shakespeare. William Shakespeare was a friend of mine. Mr Wright, you're no William Shakespeare.
