Another One in the Eye

‘How many more daylight robberies can he get away with before the editors of the Times and Spectator call a halt to his criminal spree?’

Private Eye No.1354 29 November-12 Dec. 2013, p.8

 

Have you noticed that each time Raymond Keene appears in Private Eye these days he inches ever nearer the front page? Judging by the latest exposé  it would be no surprise if the headline of a Times chess column turned out to be its only original feature. Rather than waste their creativity in this way the paper’s sub-editors could do a little ‘borrowing’ of their own and use some of the headlines below. There are surely enough here to see out the remaining weeks of the unflappable recycler’s tenure.
