Bill Deedes dead aged 94

Shadly no mishtake.

The grand old man of British journalism, former cabinet minister and inspiration for the character of William Boot in Evelyn Waugh's novel Scoop has died.

It would be fitting to link to the Daily Telegraph's coverage, but the paper's website seems to be disabled by grief.

So here is the BBC tribute instead.
