Subject: RE: Ewan MacColl's trousers
It gets better than that. There is a distinct hint of sado-masochism coming out of this. Remember that song Terry Yarnell used to sing about Andrew Rose?

"Up aloft the mate did send him,
Naked in the broiling sun."

So that's what the whips and manacles and thumbscrews were for. They weren't Ewan's ideas of teaching aids after all.
