“A.N. Wilson Is a S—“

I don’t have strong feelings about A.N. Wilson either way, but bravo for Bevis Hillier if he really was the one who tricked Wilson into including a fake letter (complete with coded insult) in his John Betjemen biography. Auberon Waugh — who once sabotaged the Spectator‘s list of contributors to credit George Gale as “Lunchtime O’Gale” — would be proud.
