To paraphrase the Great Hutch, an obit published too early is not wrong, it's just a breach of God's embargo.
What a great man. Will the Tel dig out the same obit?


Yes, I remember him* saying that, about someone else on whom the DT ran a premature obituary. I have seen the legitimate Swarb obit. It quotes from the original and draws on my interview from 2003 (see above) but broadly said the right things.

* Hutch, for readers with no knowledge of the Telegraph, was a scholarly, wise, charming and exceptionally witty deputy editor.
