50 years ago today some criminals killed a railway worker for greed.

It was NOT a Great Train Robbery!

I have also noted that the term Child Pornography is being challenged and more properly labelled Child Sexual Abuse.

Are there any others that are or should be challenged?

"Award-winning Rugby journalist Stephen Jones".

I'd disagree with that.  He wins lots of awards on here quite regularly, for example:

 

- Least liked sports journalist

- Most read sports fiction journalist

- Most contempt shown to a journalist ever

Unfortunately, yes.  Some of Rupert Murdoch's henchmen pay him for a job with that title.  It's the same principle as hiring your idiot nephew into an empty job to keep your wife happy and giving him a meaningless title such as "Head of Office Performance Management" when he's really just a tea-boy.

Liberal Democrats.  Neither part is particularly accurate going by their Coalition policies and how many people they're stuffing into the Lords.

The driver died in hospital after having been coshed. Something glossed over in various films.

 

Though Ronnie Biggs did make a record with the Sex Pistols called Cosh the Driver.
