The book, The Raped Little Runaway, by Jean Martin. was deemed “indecent or obscene” by the board.

I thought they were disbanding the censorship board once they had dealt with Laura by Alan Shatter. I don't know where I got that misinformation from. Or maybe they're still working their way through the backlog up to Laura.

As far as I can tell this is some erotica publisher who has been just churning these things out for decades.

I disagree with banning it but be fucked if I'll put energy into defending something like this. I figure we all have bigger fish to fry.

What was the last buke they banned?
The last book to be banned by the board was the 'Base Guide to London' because it advertised the locations of "places of ill-repute" in the English capital.

Yep. Anyway, you can still purchase it online and openly read it should you so desire, it's 'just' the selling/distribution of it that's prohibited.

Places of ill repute in London? Was it banned in 1998 or 1898?

Also, where can I get this buke?
It offered “streetwise” advice for urban youths about “drugs, sex, fetishism, trannies and counterfeit goods”.
Innocent times.
It was published by a shoe company so I'm guessing you had to buy some shoes to get a copy.
