So farewell then, Christopher Booker, first editor of Private Eye

You were always a scary 'un

For wrong causes you never would vary on

Pro smoking, anti-Gaia,

You'd put EU to the fire,

You put the khunt in contrarian

 

A Boris style dickwad who wisely stuck to journalism/humour - he had the career Boris should have had.

He was right on the EU, until he changed his mind.

He reminded me of Laz, but without the banter. Contrarian for the sake of it.

Old slop of course. Just like many of the early private eye crew.
