Mr Hogwart groans no more

So it’s farewell then, Simon Hogwart, 67 1324, journalist of this parish. On occasion you were very funny, and at other times tediously dull. But far less dull than the rest of us, it must be said.

Now you have gone to your News Quiz in the sky, with the mad Danish biddy left to carry the wireless show through the twenty-teenies. She’s funny too, and every bit as posh as you.

RIP Simon David Hoggart (1946–2014)
