So you tell me: was the piece by Steven Berkoff in the last issue of The Spectator a spoof? Am I dunce for having taken it as a serious piece of over-the-top, luvvycentric brown-nosing? Or was it exactly what it said on the tin?
A comment left on my original post yesterday from a regular correspondent has raised some doubt in my head. After all, surely no-one could have written stuff like that (“Ah, this is an eight-point stag…” – I mean, come off it!) and expected to be taken seriously?
Comments welcome, because I’m seriously confused now.
