ERSATZ KINGSTON NOT VOMITOUS! Yes, Uncle is as surprised as you are.

Last night I predicted a grand future for Philip Adams's choice as substitute for La Incorrigenda. I was, I confess, guided by her track record.

In fact Annabelle Crabb proved able to tell a reasonably straight story. She remained largely undiverted by Adams's constant provocations to stroke his prejudices. DO NOT LET YOUR CHILDREN READ THAT METAPHOR.

With time Ms Crabb may well become a journalist, and therefore of no use to Late Night Live.

We all make mistakes.
