Bye Bye Burchill

So its so long Julie. Yes, the self-styled Queen of the Groucho club has announced that she is retiring from journalism. Actually, I'm sorry to see her go. On paper, she was everything this aquatic creature despises: an uneducated provincial anti-Catholic cow. But but ... but there was something about that Birchill bird which gladdened the heart and quickened the pulse. She didn't take herself too seriously, was fabulously vulgar and - on occasion - was capable of turning out some liltingly brilliant copy.
