The whole point of a newspaper diary column is to fill it with interesting, quirky items which haven't appeared before. Sadly, The Sun's Whip Column is neither interesting, quirky or original, as today's offering amply demonstrates. Of the six stories, at least four of them have been lifted from the Sunday papers - none with any attribution, natch.
I'm told by friends on The Sun that the Whip's author, Katherine Bergen, reckons I am so beastly to her because she was once rude to Alan Duncan in her column and us gayers always stick together. No love, it's purely because your column's just not very good, as page 20 of The Sun demonstrates today.
