Black’s humour

Conrad ‘n Babs, as you do

The Knife has always had a sneaking regard for Conrad Black. As one of those extremely rich businessmen regularly attacked by everyone from Private Eye (who routinely described him as ‘sinister’) to the BBC, he is a high profile cocky man, who happens also to be a superb writer and historian. In addition, going back to the 70’s, I used to enjoy reading the slightly mad right wing articles by his journalist wife, the babe-ish Barbara Amiel. She was an integral part of his epic downfall, from which he is now well and truly bouncing back.

This week he’s appearing on Have I Got News For You, apparently for the sole purpose of selling his book, but one suspects that he wants a fight on TV, he’s already had two this week.

It’s nice to see Paxman getting a few bullets, and Adam Boulton (“what was your name again”?) gets it in the neck too.

Great stuff.
