Who knows anything about the new editor Alexander Chancellor? Is he the son of the famous Spectator editor?

I believe he is that same 'famous Spectator editor', Ebola

Amazing, I had no idea he was still alive.

Interesting choice of username OP. Topical , but perhaps not in the best possible taste.

Ariadne Fri 01-Aug-14 11:29:33

I agree,*Terrafirma*! Why did you choose it, OP?

When I read it earlier today (the name Ebola) it put me right off...
Not that I know anything about Alexander Chancellor anyway.

Surely GNHQ can get this changed? Would we accept a username of Alzheimer's? Lymphoma? HIV positive? Sick or pig ignorant ? (with apologies to pigs)

We have a member whose username is cretin.

Really??? That is just too tempting to reply to!! shock grin Beimg charitable I assume a dyslectic variation on CRETAN

Some significant changes in the August issue including 2 resignations. Haven't received my September issue yet.

Sounds as though it's a runaway success...confused

I agree, the user name is not in the best possible taste
