Nicholas Coleridge enhances his Wikipedia entry
Such is my omniscience as a supernatural cyclops that I had great pleasure observing Condé Nast's Managing Director Nicholas Coleridge spend an hour-and-a-quarter of company time on Wikipedia this morning, enhancing his own entry. Amendments included removing the fact that his father ran Lloyds of London during its most troubled period, but inserting the names of all of his children!
That's one of the reasons why I adore the world's worst novelist. Despite the vast salary, the acclaim, the sycophancy of his underlings and of young journalists on the broadsheets desperately seeking his career good offices, the big house in the country with its new swimming pool (I have the dimensions), despite all this, he still cares that much about what people think of him.
Do read his self-authored hagiography and marvel at a grinning ego. Click here
