Here you go: a double page spread of an exclusive Palin article in one of the many TV mags we have over in Blighty. Just click on the individual blocks to read. I had to split it into 4 cos you couldn’t see the text in its complete form. 

It’s not available online btw, so I went and bought it so you don’t have to :)
