I think I possibly read the first thing Graeme wrote for public consumption on ConservativeHome, some time ago. I remember thinking what a great writer. He had totally captivated me and taken me to the scene of his article. I was sat next to him in the street cafe from where he narrated his scene and ever since, if I see anything written by Graeme, I always read it.
So, I was delighted and honoured to read this http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/8737694/Abortion-reform-listen-to-your-prejudices.html
in this mornings Daily Telegraph.
It's a special thrill when someone you respect and whose writing you love writes about something you are doing. You can divide journalists into two groups - those who are attempting to make a name for themselves by being nasty and bitchy about others, women and Peter Oborne do this best, and those who have intergrity and are just decent people like Graeme.
The Times, carries one of those hideously make it up as we go along articles today. Pay back time for what I wrote about the incredibly toffy nosed, not of the real world Alice Thompson. Journalists just really don't like getting it back do they!
