Kylie cock-up not Murray’s fault

It is inconceivable the erudite Iain Murray would get something wrong in his column, so I must assume he was on Easter holiday when his bylined feature named William Hershall rather than William Herschell as the discoverer of Uranus (which he did with both hands in the dark on March 12, 1781).

Further proof that our Iain was employing a stand-in comes with the comment which would lead all right-thinking people to shun and despise Kylie Minogue because of her allegedly “surgically enhanced or plasticised buttocks”, when we know Iain would reserve the right to insult and belittle all who irritate him without resorting to libel.

Maybe he went on holiday with Thomson Holiday vouchers. Maybe I can.
