So farewell then, Keith Waterhouse. While I find his later novels near-unreadable, I've always had a soft spot for his earlier work, and he was one of the few good things in the Daily Mail. Apart from which, how could one not love a human being who so clearly set out to resemble a spaniel?

I first saw his name as a child on the titles of "Worzel Gummidge". His scripts for the programme, and the amount they still make my own children laugh, is how I'll remember him.
