The end of a beautiful writing career

I was walking past the Bournemouth International Centre when I met Ben Davies, the editor of the New Statesman website, coming the other way. He is the man with whom I devised Calder's Comfort Farm. Naturally, we went for a beer and swapped the gossip of the day.

The only problem is that I was carrying a copy of the Daily Mail at the time.

Of course, I was able to explain that the newsagents had run out of all the broadsheets. Besides, it is possible to enjoy the Mail as a comic, much as one read the Sun in the 1980s...

I'll get me coat.
