Has Waterhouse left the building?

DELIGHTFUL STUFF from Keith Waterhouse on his 80th birthday back in February: ‘I’m not a religious man; I don’t fear death. I get rather angry about death when I think about all the things I want to do, but I wouldn’t say I fear it. There’s always tomorrow. At least there has been so far.”

But now there’s not – well not in a national newspaper, anyway. According to Revel Barker at the splendid gentlemenranters.com, the great man has hung up his typewriter and abandoned his Daily Mail column.

What a sad, if inevitable, loss to our trade.
