    And now the ban has been completely lifted. The book can be provided to anyone, including those under 14.

    On Morning Report about 8.45am’ish (paraphrased from memory as they don’t yet have it online here):

    Bob McCoskrie, eventually: "They will be confronted by it and …get upset … and they may not actually get past some of the pages."

    Finally, I understand!
