From: Tony Williams

SIUC
 A CLOCKWORK ORANGE is not officially banned in England. Stanley Kubrick
has withdrawn it from theatrical and video release. He is fed up with the
ways in which it is usually reductively understood, especially in being
regarded as the first "video nasty." England is now one of the most
censored countries in the world. The cultural level has really declined
after 16 years of Thatcherism and the increasing domination of Rupert
Murdoch on media and newspapers.
  Kubrick basically withdrew his work in despair at what is going on.
